With a history of more than 430 years, the Spanish Riding School (Spanische Hofreitschule) is the oldest riding institution in the world. The traditional establishment is thus an extremely important cultural institution in Vienna and annually attracts more than 300.000 visitors. Based in St. Michael's Wing of the Viennese Hofburg Palace, the high art of classical horsemanship has been cultivated and practiced here ever since. Thereby the Spanish Riding School with its Lipizzaner training significantly contributes to the conservation of this art.
