  • Very well preserved, impressive plant. The way through the main gate makes comprehensible the strength. The view is great on all sides!

  • After about 4 hours, we left this comprehensive informational exhibition, pretty exhausted. The Veste Coburg is optimally suited for this, if you except that multiple stairs to rise are. The tour with the audio guides is clearly preferable to a guided tour. The child-friendly design is remarkable. Only criticism is unfavourably located the slots Cafè, and bad quality of coffee.

  • The Veste Coburg is one of the most beautiful castles that exist in Upper Franconia. You could take out to quiet such an event like yesterday the Rittertunier in the program of time travel. With the great scenery in the background, it was a unique evening!

  • 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.
