  • Bring time - 2 hours minimum - to explore the beautiful place. So much medieval history to see and I recommend to plan your tour and limit to the themes that interest you most.
  • It may seem like a fortress among the many throughout Germany, but it actually has an special charm! The facade is quite beautiful, somehow rustic, and it has amazing views over Coburg but also the surrounding valley. Totally worth the climb uphill! Also on the way you can fin the Natural Sciences museum which is free until 13:30h and has some curious things inside.
