  • When you're in Coburg you should necessarily even look the Veste. Coburg is also so beautiful once a year there's a Smaba Festival there. Today I was fair not bad for a tatoo

  • You should bring time and start visiting castle on the market square in Coburg. Strengthened by an original Coburg sausage can rise above the theatre square to the castle through the Park/forest make. You learn to appreciate the size of the Vestungsanlage, which is getting bigger and bigger. Once at the top, you are rewarded by a beautiful view in any direction of the Coburger land. The Vestung has a lot of buildings to provide vantage points and exhibitions. The museums are intetessant and have each large collections. The mittelalerliche arms and armor collection is probably one of the largest of its kind. It is also nice that the castle is not so crowded. What is the trip for children? Even as a child, I was often on the Veste (incl. the long ascent). It was always fun. And now it was a great day for my teenage daughter.

  • One of the largest castles of in Central Europe is the landmark of Swiss franc. High above the city, you can see the Veste Coburg from afar. Definitely an AusflugsMUSS for every visitor of franc and South Thuringia!

  • Well, this is a must-see. You can't come to Coburg and skip this fortress. There is a history with Martin Luther. Many great Cranach paintings. Much more to see. Plan on a few hours here. If you are physically fit, it's worth the hike up the beautiful park to get there.
  • A lot of history in one place and except for the Kunstsammlung openly accessible.
  • Beautiful place! There was an exhibition on but unfortunately the 'historical route' through the exhibition didn't really make logical sense. Loved the horse drawn carriage display.
  • It really takes time to climb there, but it worth it. Unbelievable views and the castle is amazing)
  • An incredible place ❤
