Excellent to be able to enter the stables, the architectural tour somewhat short, access to the roof unnecessary

It was a very exciting tour through the inner courtyard, the stables, the riding hall up to the roof. We had a very competent woman as a guide who wonderfully brought us closer to life in the past and today at the Vienna Riding School.

Awesome

Super amazingw interesting tour. You will discover behind colises, but the background and history of the Spanish riding school and the horses will be discussed. Highly recommended.
