Very Impressive Castle above Coburg. It's more museum than former residence but does have some historical items from the Saxe-Gotha-Coburgs. You really get a feeling for the changes that can happen over several centuries in such a castle. DO NOT miss the hunting room with...More

Very impressive castle up in a hill. Huge place but not terribly well organised for tourists. But at 8 Euro entry you can forgive. Prince Albert ( As in Queen Victoria) is one of its most famous occupants, very surprised that there was virtually no...More

The Veste is always a great place to visit when coming to Coburg. I like the fact that you can walk around by yourself, rest in the shade and if you choose, you can pay for some extra exhibits, like the Martin Luther Room, the...More
