The Spanish Riding School in Vienna is world renowned for the skill of its riders and the intelligence of its horses. A visit here is a must for anyone with equestrian interests, but it generally comes at an impressive price. There is a cheaper option though! The school uses Lipizzaner stallions and the horses look like they are dancing at times.
Schönbrunn Palace, just outside Vienna, was the pinnacle of luxury for the Habsburgs who ruled Austria for centuries. From the outside, it’s a striking yellow colour and seems to stretch across a large area from one end to the other. Inside, it’s a real treat.
Mozarthaus in Vienna as a grand city centre apartment which was Mozart’s home for around 3 years. He actually lived in a number of different apartments in Vienna, but this is the only one which still remains.
He did live here longer than any of the others though and called this building home from 1784 to 1787.
The Reisenrad Wheel is Vienna’s most prominent landmark and it can be seen for miles around. Many cities in the world these days have a modern version of this kind of wheel, but what makes the Reisenrad extra special is its history. It’s been spinning visitors for well over a hundred years.
