Vienna: 1-Hour Boat Tour on the Danube Canal
- Duration: 75 minutes
Visit the Spanish Riding School of Vienna and observe the horses during their training. In the magnificent setting of the baroque Winter Riding Academy, the training offers an insight into the years of training of the Lipizzaners and their riders. The morning exercise of the horses is accompanied by classical Viennese music. The Training includes relaxation exercises, refining and perfecting movement and strengthening certain muscles. The famous school jumps levade, courbette and capriole, which are shown as part of the performances by the Spanish Riding School, are not practiced on a daily basis and can only sometimes be seen during the morning exercise. The white Lipizzaner stallions are put through their paces by their riders almost every day. The primary objective of the morning exercise is to maintain the horses’ athleticism and health, as well as to build up various muscle groups...
Its fun to see the training. Unfortunately I didn’t know there were different types of tickets so we didn’t have great seats. But we enjoyed it all the same.

We loved the concert. The quartet of musicians were absolutely enjoying themselves as professionals and it made the performance so enjoyable to watch and listen. Would enjoy it even longer than that 1 hour. The church itself is stunning and intimate, with great acoustics. We sat in the front row all alone, I think it was the best - Never been so close to violins before. Cons: people applauded between movements.
Enjoy the Ballet of the White Stallions at the unique, baroque Winter Riding School at Hofburg Palace, built under Charles VI. These performances are the result of years of training for the rider and their Lipizzans. The Spanish riding school is the only institution in the world which has practiced classical equitation in the Renaissance tradition of the Haute Ecole for more than 450 years. From the young, boisterous stallions to the fully trained School Stallions, they enchant the audience with their performance of breathtaking excercises such as caprioles, Levade and many more. The physique and grace of Lipizzans are ideally suited to the High School of Classical Horsemanship. They are Europe's oldest horse breed. The exercise and preservation of the High School of Classical Horsemanship are some of the core tasks carried out by the Spanish Riding School which is inscribed on the UNES...
This was my father-in-law’s bucket list thing to do in Vienna and was not disappointed! We all had a great time!

Fantastic! Would see this again and again. Great to watch the musicians in such an intimate environment.
The "Salonorchester Alt Wien" offers a unique program of the most celebrated compositions by the "waltz-king" Johann Strauss, and that most brilliant exponent of Viennese Classicism, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Experience one of the best-known performances of classic Viennese music at this fabulous concert in the world capital of music.

Outstanding performance … Better than anything we expected, by far! … 8 piece orchestra, supported by 2 ballet dancers & 2 singers … a wonderful evening, one of the highlights of our holiday.
Experience an incredible evening in classic style and enjoy the most beautiful compositions of Johann Strauss and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Enjoy the whole repertoire of classical music and admire the excellent opera singers and fascinating ballet soloists. Begin the evening with a 3-course meal in the in-house restaurant "Das Johann" and enjoy the Salonorchester of Old Vienna's music in the Kursalon. Hear beautiful operettas and impressive solo concerts by the 2 best composers in the world, performed with incredible artistry.
The concert was amazing. Most probably because it was the first concert after a long time. The venue is great, the atmosphere is great and the musicians, singers and dancers were amazing. The dark side of this attraction is dinner. There was wedding fest going on at the same restaurant with loud music playing, the tables and chairs were brought from the terrace and the seating has been arrange in the empty hall from furnishings that remain after the wedding fest. Just four-five table in the big room with loud music coming from the next door. No possibility to go sit outside where majority of people coming from the street ate. The staff really did not care about the people who bought this package. Just "ok, we have to somehow feed you". The service was bad, the food was also absolutely average. The cheapest possible option. If I go again, I would go to the concert but not to the dinner. You better go and eat what you want and sit where you want with the proper atmosphere.
Experience Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, a masterpiece of classical music. Visit Vienna’s Karlskirche and listen to the concertos of a string quartet and basso continuo.

I really enjoyed it! I am a fan of classical music and Vivaldi, but I've never been to a concert of this sort, so I'm no expert in the subject. I only know the compositions. The band performed beautifully and the company staff were superb. I advise you to come as early as possible because there are very few seats with a decent view to the stage (this is valid for catg. III and II) and try to go to the bathroom before the concert since there isn't one in the church.
The Mozart Ensemble Vienna invites you to a moving and unforgettable concert at Mozart's first house in Vienna. Enjoy music from the Viennese Classical Period by the likes of Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Beethoven, and more. The Sala Terrena at Mozarthaus Vienna is located in Vienna’s historic city center, near both St. Stephan’s Cathedral and Hofburg. It was built as part of the monastery of the German Knightly Order in the second half of the 12th century. In 1781, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived in the monastery of the German Order of Knights. He played several concerts in Vienna’s oldest concert hall commissioned by Archbishop Colloredo, an important patron of the Mozart family.
This was a fantastic experience. I was excited to watch a concert of Mozart's music in a room he once played, and in a house he once (briefly) lived in. In the end, however, it was the quartet that blew me away. They played more than just Mozart, masterly weaving through many greats - Bach and Schubert to name a few. Each player was a master at their instrument and performed with synchrony and passion. I really didn't want it to end. I can't imagine anyone leaving this experience dissatisfied! I'd highly recommend it.

Stor oplevelse. Kunne dog tænke mig, at billetterne evt. kunne printes hjemme fra. Noget besværligt at indløse voucherne da der ikke var en specifik adresse, hvor de kunne indløses.

Worth every last penny!!! What an experience!!! Phenomenal! Extremely well done performance. The only thing I would change are the chair set up. Everyone who was not directly in front was complaining about their necks.

An amazing day from start to finish! You don't need to be a lover of wine to enjoy this execurison. It's intimate, due to small group, filled with visits to several attractions along the valley. Our tour guide, Iolo, was great fun, full of stories and always great with answering any questiond. Highly recommend this trip.
The boat tour was exactly on time and we could sit on the outside or inside the boat. We sat inside and had a great view of the river and surrounding buildings. The menu is reasonable. Overall it was a very relaxing experience.
The snitzel was good as was the wine and coffee. Even though the weather wasn’t the best the boat ride on the Danube was relaxing and beautiful showing off the diversity of bienna
It was great, just great organized and great weather. Gladly again!
All services were great. Excellent food, nice staff.
