  • 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.
  • It really takes time to climb there, but it worth it. Unbelievable views and the castle is amazing)
  • 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.
  • The fortress of Festje-this is a very interesting and beautiful place. Here enjoy and adults and children. There is nothing more beautiful to explore middle ages in such places. Here there is a convenient parking, restrooms, restaurant, a good Museum and a very nice Museum shop. If you are not going to go inside, then keep walking through the territory of the fortress. It's free. You can see the city and hills and so much else. At the highest point in have a great huge Linden. If you arrive in August, will be able to enjoy also the tremendous aroma.

  • Wow. That's a really well preserved fortress complex. On every corner there is what to see. The view is great up on the view to the old town (which is obscured by the trees) and enables a wide view. Each part of the Veste Coburg acts for himself and two hours are quite quickly without museum visit over. For the photographer necessarily sehens-us worth visiting no matter whether summer or winter. Between Christmas and new year, we visit smaller cities and we will come even once here in the spring/summer.
