I have to admit, I am a huge royal family fan, and I have a very kind husband who will basically go wherever I drag him. So while traveling from Dresden to Rothenburg of course we are going to stop at Prince Albert's boyhood home!...More

Rude and unhelpful shouted that the tour was full. Avoid. Go to Coburg castle instead if you have time.

It's worth a trip through this house, 5 mins walk from the town square: it's combination of state rooms and interesting details that pepper this tour - early plumbing, sumptuous plaster-fittings, a meditation corner, a playable 200-year-old French piano and paintings of all the royals...More

While somewhat bland on the outside, the interior is worth the price of admission, See Victoria's bed and then some. All is well preserved, and where else do you get a chance to play the piano Queen Victoria played during her 7 visits there..

The residence of the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family situated in the lovely town of Coburg is worthwhile a visit without any doubt. The connections with British, Portuguese and many others royal families are explained at the entrance but the great highlight is the huge and fantastic Giants...More
