We were able to take the English tour. We learned a great deal about the history of the area and its rulers. The rooms were well kept with many beautiful artifacts and pieces of art.

Such a beautiful royal palace- right in the middle of the Coburg! Tours at the top of each hour are only in German, but there is an English booklet that is informative. The private rooms are just exquisite, and the Hall of Giants is breathtaking!...More
