We were pleasantly surprised

It was a pleasure to tour the place and visit with the statue of Albert. One of the better and more lively market squares so far.

We have been to most major cities and a lot of towns in Germany and this was the prettiest. The town square has so much colour and none of the buildings are ugly 60's concrete replacements. I took a beautiful 360 degree picture using the Google street app. A must see, well worth the trip from Bamberg just for this.... More

This is in the heart of Coburg town center. It is a beautiful square or Platz surrounded by many beautiful historical buildings, including the Rathaus. There is a small food cart in the square selling Coburg bratwurst, which is a rather delicious snack.

Walked into the town square and enjoyed the architecture of the surrounding buildings. Got to see the buildings with lights as well, well worth the wait.

I arrived at the market square on my route from the station to the castle above the town, and I thought it was architecturally very beautiful. There is a range of buildings which were all worth photographing. I noticed a number of restaurants. It was clearly a place where the locals hung out. Any visit to Coburg should include a... More

there are better sights in Coburg than the Marktplatz. Still a nice place to have lunch or dinner outside.
