Spanish Riding School

Fête Impériale

Sparkling summer ball highlight from the Spanish Riding School

“Dancing under the starry sky so that the Lipizzaner people can continue to dance” – this has already become an institution in Austria with an echo all over the world. The Spanish Riding School, in keeping with the tradition of Empress Maria Theresa’s carousels for women, offers the unique setting for the most beautiful summer ball in Austria.

In addition to the charitable purpose for the breeding of the Lipizzaner horses, the Fête Impériale not only established itself as the most beautiful summer ball in the Austrian ball calendar, but also as an international highlight that impressed guests from all over the world – in addition to Viennese ball guests.

Both the winter riding school – where the opening takes place – and the stable castle are used as ballrooms. The atmosphere in the summer riding arena is particularly special, as people stroll and laugh under the open sky. In addition, there is a cocktail in the wonderful atmosphere under the Michaelerkuppel for all VIP, box and table card owners. (Description from
