Good morning in Vienna

The ticket retrieval was confusing. You have to go into the Imperial Treasury and collect the tickets for both. The Lipizzaner entrance has a queue on the right with tickets and a queue on the left to buy tickets. The horses were lovely, I am not a horse person really but it was a really nice experience watching the riders and horses train. People leave a free an hour then the seats become available so be patient! The Imperial Treasury was nice but has to have the audio tour to get the most out of it. Some astonishing artifacts on show and some stunning cloaked and other garments. Under 19s are free in the Imperial Treasury so watch that if you are booking the two together.

Excellent value for money

Both were very entertaining albeit the morning Spanish Riding School training session was a little disappointing in that there was no group sessions rather a prosession of 4 or 5 horses and riders at any one time essentially going round and round up and down. At times got a bit boring. Other than that it was good value entertainment for 2 hours. The Treasury was excellent. Many very old and interesting things to see.
