In the rolling hills of western Styria lies the idyllic village of Piber. Even as you approach, you can make out the impressive baroque Piber Castle from a distance. Surrounded by lush meadows and green forests, the home of Europe's oldest breed of cultured horses, the Lipizzaner, opens up against a dreamlike backdrop. In the Lipizzaner stud Piber not only the preservation of the oldest culture horse breed in Europe is secured but also the offspring for the world famous Spanish Riding School in Vienna. In the nursery of the Lipizzaner horses of the Spanish Riding School, there is a lot to experience, from guided tours of the stud to blacksmithing, public riding training, and carriage racing to foal experiences. A café-restaurant and children's playground are also available.
