Lovely self-tour of this palace and gardens, the residence of the current Duke and his family. The view of the surrounding countryside is most impressive. Most of the rooms are not furnished, but rather, present beautiful objects in a museum-like setting. The collection of family portraits gives faces to the many members of the family who were integrated through marriage... More

You get to wander the halls and the gardens by yourself. You can feel what it would have been like to live in such a wonderful place. Plus they have some wonderful artwork and clocks on display. It is a great place to learn the history of Coburg.

I really loved the Castle. The walk up was steep but I got to see Deer in the meadow. The Shooting Museum was an amazing experience. There were trophies going back years. Olympic torches and Medals too. The memorabilia was well worth it. I got to hold a 1996 Olymic Gold Medal. We tried using the Archery "machine" there too.... More

The castle has been the summer residence of the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha ducal house until 1945, less than 75 years ago, so you don't feel you are walking through a museum-type castle, but feel like the owners will come back any minute. In some rooms, you almost expect to smell the cigar that was smoked there only last night! There were unfortunately... More

I highly recommend visiting this castle. It has a beautiful garden that looks out onto a field with deer. It takes an hour or more to see everything in the castle. Some rooms you can't enter but the doors are class so you can see inside. There is a parking lot and it takes about 10 minutes to walk up... More

We were drawn by curiosity and a photo exhibition. Castle entry with the exhibition was only 5 Euro. If you are fascinated by the British royal family, the castle becomes much more interesting, as there is seemingly a portrait of every member of the family, except for 'black sheep.' The extensive marksmanship exhibit is among the least interesting I have... More

Only 5 Euro/person (and part of the Coburg combo ticket) and GREAT value for the money! We went on a lazy Saturday afternoon and were able to walk through at our own leisure and explore on our own. There are great family heirlooms and paintings throughout the castle. You can really tell that the family is involved in how the... More
