Lipizzaner stud Piber –
Worth a visit 365 days a year!
The picturesque village of Piber is nestled in the rolling hills of Western Styria, surrounded by lush meadows and green forests, and is home to Europe’s oldest cultural horse breed. As the only federal stud in Austria, the Lipizzaner stud Piber is called on to breed the Lippizaner studs that are to perform in the world-famous Spanish Riding School in Vienna, thus preserving that magnificent Lippizaner breed. The knowledge gathered through centuries of breeding these majestic white horses at the Styrian Lipizzaner stud Piber was recently included on UNESCO’s list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Whether it’s a visit to the Lipizzaner stud Piber, going on carriage rides or enjoying an Alpine pasture on your summer holiday, the imperial white horses can be marveled at in all their glory.
