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.

The Saturday market was in full swing as we arrived, just before lunchtime. If you're looking for wonderfully fresh bread, fruit, vegetables or tasty sausages, this is the place to be.

What else is Coburg famous for? Well, according to my father it would be hand’s down: THE Coburg Christmas Market. Okay, he is right! It is the best thing to do in December and the Glühwein and Honey-wine (“Met”-debet) is just the best. You have a plethora of food, sweets, handcrafted thingies and attractions for kids. My family and I... More
