    Everyone always talks about Weimar and Eisenach. Gotha is at least as beautiful !!!
    Around the castle you can roam the extensive parks, or visit the very old town! "Visit Gotha"

    Germany. Shortly before the end of the Thirty Years War, Herzog began
    Seriously the pious with the construction of the imposing complex. All functions of the ducal representation and the
    State administration place. The Ekhof theater is a rarity, its baroque one
    Stage machinery is still used today. (... from information board)
