    The Friedenstein Castle in Gotha (Thuringia) is an early Baroque palace complex on the site of Grimmenstein Castle, which was razed in 1567. It is the largest palace building in Germany from the 17th century and today houses a variety of museums and art collections (Wikipedia).

    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"

    Friedenstein Palace in Gotha is considered to be the earliest baroque new palace to be built
    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)

    An impressive palace complex!
    Quote from the foundation: "The worldwide uniqueness of this baroque heritage in Gotha lies in the fact that, in addition to the castle building with its interiors and the remarkable castle park with orangery, all the collections have been preserved in this place for more than 350 years."
    We can only recommend a visit.
