The “Fränkische Krone” (Franconian Crown) is one of the largest medieval castle buildings in Germany. Martin Luther lived within its walls in 1530. Today, internationally significant art collections are housed there.
With Sunday trading and no shops open we took the opportunity to visit the castle, due to the English Royal Family connection.

The staff in the reception area were helpful to us ‘...More

You can easily spend...More

Good views. Luther formed many of his protestant view whilst here. In the 19th century, the princes of Coburg married into all the royal families - Sweden, Russia, UK, Bulgaria, became the Kings of Belgium (there were probably more) - and this, their fortress-home, was...More
