Day 2
Vienna | Vienna

This morning your private guide will meet you to take you for a short stroll into the Hofburg Palace Complex, including the Spanishe Hofreitschule – the Spanish Riding School (approximately a 15 minute walk from your hotel).

Founded in 1572, it is the oldest and last riding school in the world where classic dressage is still practiced in its purest form. Its very name gives away the fact that the horses were of Spanish origin. The Lipizzaner is regarded as the oldest classic horse race in Europe. This morning, schedule permitting, you may visit a practice session of the Spanish Riding School.

Afterwards, continue on your walking tour of the Hofburg Palace complex. Explore the State Treasuries, which house a vast and opulent collection of Hapsburg treasures, one of the greatest Imperial collections of Europe.

When you exit the Hofburg, your guide will show you some of the most famous coffeehouses of Vienna, including Demel, located close by. An afternoon coffee and snack is one of the true treats of Vienna! You will have this afternoon to explore on your own. Some of the finest shopping in Europe is in this quarter, including the best antique shops of the city!

Note: All touring today is on foot in largely pedestrian only areas.
