The famous Spanish Riding School in Vienna, Austria, is located in a number of buildings on the Michaelerplatz and the Josefplatz near the Hofburg in central Vienna. Performances take place in the Winter Riding School, an elegant riding hall that was completed in 1735 and was commissioned by the Emperor Charles VI. Prior to that, the School operated from an arena at the Imperial Palace. The Winter Riding School is completely white, with a portrait of Emperor Charles VI above the royal box and opposite the entrance (to which the riders always salute before they ride), and measures 55 by 18 meters and is 17 meters in height.
