go to the horses with a Private guide
See the most beautiful horses train (only on Tuesdays to Fridays possible) and then see the magnificent palace where they are born ! and also have a look on Graz which is one the most exciting towns of Austria!
It will be an introduction not only to the horses themselves but also into the Austrian way of living - and seeing things -
Altogether it is one of the best experiences to be made in Austria!
First thing in the morning we will go see the training of the majestic studs in Vienna's Winter Palace and experience the work out of the grown up stallions (ONLY TUESDAYS TO FRIDAYS POSSIBLE !). What follows is an approximatley two hour scenic drive via the Semmering and passing Graz and gov. Schwarzenegger's birth place to get to Piber in Styria - where the Stud Farm of the Lippizaner Horses is. . . lets look around and even get in touch with some of them - and with a little luck also see a new born colt though one way mirrors !
On the way back to Vienna I will show you one of my favorite towns in Austria - the Styrian capital Graz - and also the world's biggest medevial armory. . .

It was a 10 hour tour and we did not have lunch. Otherwise the tour was good except that I was disappointed we did not see a performance at the riding school which I believe was implied in the description.
