Veste Coburg Reviews
Ein Besuch der Veste ist zu jeder Jahreszeit ein Besuch wert. Der Spaziergang durch den Park ist sehr erholsam und schön. Auto unbedingt unten lassen. more »A visit to the Veste is worth a visit at any time of the year. The walk through the park is very relaxing and beautiful. Leave the car down.
Magnifique château très bien entretenu. De tres belles choses à voir et le point de vue est tres bien aussi. Je recommande more »Beautiful castle very well maintained. Very nice things to see and the view is very good too. I recommend
Impressive, but 8€ is a bit steep for looking around inside.
A very nice fortress with a lot of history stories and heritage. It is one of the most important place in German history. Found out a lot of things about the old German Hohenzollern dynasty. The walk up to the place is through a nice park for about 30 minutes. The fortress inside building has many interesting architectural details and the museum was open in April until 17.00h.
