The birthplace of Prince Albert, Queen Victoria's consort, is a gem with beautiful woodwork, panels with hunting scenes, wooden sculpture, amazing grounds.

Service was rubbish and staff disinterested this restaurant seems very overrated because it is up on the hill in the castle.

Very Impressive Castle above Coburg. It's more museum than former residence but does have some historical items from the Saxe-Gotha-Coburgs. You really get a feeling for the changes that can happen over several centuries in such a castle. DO NOT miss the hunting room with...More

It's one of the most impressive castles I've visited! The area outside is the same worth visiting like the museum inside. It's a must-do!

With Sunday trading and no shops open we took the opportunity to visit the castle, due to the English Royal Family connection. We eat at the restaurant just outside, which was OK not brilliant. The staff in the reception area were helpful to us ‘...More

Very impressive castle up in a hill. Huge place but not terribly well organised for tourists. But at 8 Euro entry you can forgive. Prince Albert ( As in Queen Victoria) is one of its most famous occupants, very surprised that there was virtually no...More

The Veste is always a great place to visit when coming to Coburg. I like the fact that you can walk around by yourself, rest in the shade and if you choose, you can pay for some extra exhibits, like the Martin Luther Room, the...More

Really worth the visit. Walk up the hill through the park. There is a great little restaurant open until 1800 each day. Serves food and drink sitting in the ramparts of the castle. The castle is well organised with lots to see. The views are...More
