Since the late 16th Century, the world famous Spanish white horses, the Lipizzaners, had been bred from Lipizza in Slovenia. Nowadays, the permanent home of these splendid horses is in Piber, in the Austrian province of Styria. People who don't want to travel so far can take a look in the newly opened Lipizzaner Museum, situated in the former imperial pharmacy in the first district. The exhibition looks back at the history of the Lipizzans with paintings, drawings, photographs, engravings, riders' uniforms and video-clips, which illuminate the world of haute école. Through big glass windows, visitors can have a look at the horses' stables, and it is also possible to buy tickets for training sessions at the Riding School.
