Tradition in Change
Coburg is a culturally rich city joining history and modernity to a unique city image.
For a long time, Coburg was the manor of the Dukes of Sachsen-Coburg and Gotha and served as a place to meet European aristocracy. The appearance of the city is mainly determined by the medieval architecture, castles and palaces: Palace Ehrenburg and its Palace Square, State Theatre, the Palace Edinburgh (Chamber of Commerce at Coburg, Bürglassschlösschen (registry office) and the Veste Coburg determined.Palais Edinburg and the Fortress Coburg.
The Fortress Coburg, called as Franconian Crown, rises 150 meters over the city and provides its visitors magnificent view over Coburg and its surroundings reaching to the Thuringian Forest. Even in the Thirty Years' War, the Fortress was never destroyed.
