    Although I can not contribute a picture - it is already dark - the detour to this vantage point worthwhile until dark. The castle / fortress is illuminated high on the mountain. Fantastic.

    Ehrenburg Castle was the residence castle of the Dukes of Saxe-Coburg. The castle is located on the eastern edge of the historic old town of the Upper Franconian town of Coburg.

    It originated from 1543 from a Franciscan monastery. The end of the 16th century was followed by an extension. In 1690, the castle was rebuilt into a baroque three-wing complex, and in the 19th century, according to the designs of Karl Friedrich Schinkel, received a Gothic façade and residential and festival rooms designed in French Empire style. Today, the castle houses the Landesbibliothek Coburg. Around 25 historically furnished rooms can be visited in guided tours. Source: Wikipedia

    Schloss Ehrenburg was built in the 16th century under Duke Johann Ernst as a representative city residence. With the completion, the court of the Dukes of the Veste was moved to the new building in the city. According to legend, Emperor Charles V is said to have given the imposing three-wing complex the name "Ehrenburg" to express his pride that the construction - unusual for the time at that time - had been carried out only by paid workers.
