Walking through a forest the mighty Veste Coburg emerges. This spectacular building feels nestled in its surroundings. Friendly and helpful staff with a very well thought of curated museum with english descriptions for each piece. A must

A half and hour Ish walk from the old town, through the pretty hofgarten. There are two routes up to the veste. A shorter but more steep path with steps, that takes around 10minutes from the base. Or a sloped path that takes around 15...More

The history is so enriching! A definite MUST! Coburg has so many stories that I recommend the walking city tour. It is €6 and you learn a lot. Also great for teens.

Beautifully set on top of the hill. There is a bus but if you can approach from the castle grounds should do and it will give you a real sense of why no one ever successfully attacked it. The exhibition and round tour of the...More

This is an inexpensive and very nice way to spend a day. The Romanesque/Gothic castle sits atop of a hill in Coburg which lends itself to some lovely views. Construction (fortification) began in the 10th century. It's one of the largest castles in Germany; the...More

Overlooking the city of Coburg. Recommend using Audio guide otherwise lot of information is missed. The layout is sometimes muddled. Given the frequency Queen Victoria visited there hardly any mention. Extensive range of portraits, military weapons & armoury.

Stumbled upon this place on a morning walk. The ancient walls, stunning views, fragrant lavender patch, and rich history made for a truly memorable visit.

Lovely old castle full of history and charm. It's a huge walk up the hill through lovely gardens but is you like you can catch the little train that goes every 1/2 hour for about 4.30 Euro return. We missed it so we walked up...More

I'm wondering if you can get reservations to the Ritteressen at Vesta Coburg? I can't find anything online.
