  • Beautiful Grand Palace, with beautiful art collection and authentic furniture. With the same ticket you also have access to the Herzogliches Museum.

  • Huge castle with many art collections. They even had a private theatre. On the first floor there is also a large collection of stuffed animals. With the entrance fee, you can also free to the museum right in front of the Castle.

  • Overall, it is worth to look at the Castle. With an audio guide, you get lots of important info. Who would like to have a guide, must pay very much - too bad actually! "On your own" is 1.5 hours in the Castle bloody on the road.

  • On December 29, we visited the featured Castle in Gotha. The individual rooms and exhibitions are impressive and interesting. Very unfriendly but we were welcomed at the box office. The cashier was granted not the due to us discount of € 2.00 per ticket. Discount is there only for designated, she said curtly. So beware. Because it stands to guests with Spa map what us later once again confirmed the tourist information.

  • It a trip was worth us recently to Gotha, to explore the Thuringian land exhibition "The Ernestines - a dynasty characterizes Europe" in the Ducal Museum, which is below of the Schloss Friedenstein, the exhibition (was held from April 24 to August 28, 2016). The connection of the Ernestines to Gotha and Coburg to the European ruling houses is still impressive. In the Schloss Friedenstein we discovered interesting exhibitions.

  • During our visit, the broadcast of "Art & clutter" was filmed by the Bavarian broadcasting. As a result, a non-negligible part of the Castle (among others in the Hall of mirrors) was not to visit. The full entrance fee was required but still I find this inappropriate. Photo permission costs €5 - we go yet? Is a gall real! P.S. members of BR crews need to no overshoes attract - the remaining visitors already - what is that Nice please? This mess reflects poorly on the castle administration I think.

  • A really impressive building - almost "erschlagend".
