The visit of this town castle -Buckingham style is by tour only. It costs 4 euros and starts on the hour. Be on time. The tour was in Gernan only and was suprisingly very enjoyable. The rooms are well preserved and give a good impression of the life of a royal/ noble family in 18.19th century. The direct connection to... More

This was a guided tour in German. There is a small translated pamphlet in different languages. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the residence, the restoration of it and gave some funny anecdotes about the way of life. About an hour and 1/2 long tour. Worth its money! For older people be aware that you will have to go... More

This is a beautiful place to look around especially if you're interested in the history of our monarchy and their connection to the Coburg's! No English tours but they'll give you a handout and you can just laugh when everyone else does!

You have to have the guided tour, you cant go round on your own- due to locking, lighting and so on. Tours every hour on the hour. I was the only one on my tour, and the guide spoke close to perfect (american) english. She knew all the historyt of the palace, and was able to relate it all back... More

What an outstanding treasure! We followed behind the German language tour with a young man who spoke very good English. In a sense, it was like having a private tour of the palace. Incredible that so much of what is seen is original to the palace. The tour was about an hour long and unlike some of the other palaces... More

I was there on a weekday and had my own private tour. If all you speak is English you'll get a nice hand out with all the interesting information, if you're German you're good to go. The place is amazing, the Hall of Giants is beyond pictures. There is a private collection of middle age paintings that you won't see... More

When i was in Coburg for Erasmus,I visited this museum.It's in the city center,very near to the Marktplatz.Its architecture is amazing and tells you too much thing about Bavaria.The museum is fulled with Bavarian things.You can visit it if you come to Coburg.

My husband and I visited Schloss Ehrenburg two weeks ago during the beginning of a 12 night stay in Germany. We had just spent a few nights in Belgium and The Netherlands and were very excited to travel through Germany as this was our first trip there. Unfortunately this tour guide gave us anything but a warm, welcoming feeling. We... More

Schloss Ehrenburg was one of the three castles we visited while in Coburg (the other two were the Veste and Schloss Rosenau), all very worthwhile. There is a guided tour every hour and you cannot visit the castle on your own. Tours are in German only and the guide knows a lot about its history and is passionate about it.... More
