The Stallions Room was used as a dining room during the nineteenth century. Displayed here today is the so-called Marshal’s Table, a festively decorated table set for a dinner of the highest-ranking military officers and court officials, who dined without the emperor, as was customary in Franz Joseph’s time.

The name of the room derives from the pictures which decorate the room: the white-and-gold panelled walls are hung with numerous portraits of horses
from the imperial studs and paintings showing horses grazing. Dating to around 1720, the time of the dowager empress Wilhelmine Amalie, these works are among the oldest paintings
at Schönbrunn. The central painting shows a hunt with hounds in the forests bordering the River March (Morava) to east of Vienna, in which the empress’s husband, Emperor Joseph I, took part.
