If you drive here, and are lucky enough to arrive while the theatre across the park from the castle has a performance, then you can park for free....but once the theatre performance is over you better move your car or get locked in! The castle...More

We were able to take the English tour. We learned a great deal about the history of the area and its rulers. The rooms were well kept with many beautiful artifacts and pieces of art.

We took the required tour, (in German but with good written guide in English) and really enjoyed the palace. Great art, tapestries, wonderful ceilings.

Such a beautiful royal palace- right in the middle of the Coburg! Tours at the top of each hour are only in German, but there is an English booklet that is informative. The private rooms are just exquisite, and the Hall of Giants is breathtaking!...More

Impressive castle with a long history. To recommend for all who take an interest in the house of Sachsen-Coburg and Gotha. Take a guided tour to get the most of out of your visit. We had a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide.

We went to Schloss Ehrenburg on a Saturday for the 5pm tour. The young tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate, throwing lots of jokes into the tour. (They were in German, which we don’t understand, but it was still nice). We were offered sheets...More
