Coburg: Veste und Altstadt
Joachim and Sandra 🥾🥾🎒 went for a hike.
July 13, 2021
We start our sightseeing tour from a parking lot above the Veste Coburg and after 500 m we reach the medieval castle, which has been converted into a fortress.The path leads us through the Hofgarten to Ehrenburg Palace and on to the market square, which is connected to the old town by seven alleys. This is where the trade routes Nuremberg-Erfurt and Prague-Frankfurt am Main crossed, the beautiful town hall, the impressive town house (former ducal chancellery building) with its corner core (Coburg bay window) and the courtyard pharmacy are located here.After the tour of the old town, we will finally fortify ourselves in the traditional Loreley inn.
Even the approach to Coburg offers us great views of the fortress. When we park our mobile home on a parking lot near the fortress (parking fee 2.00 euros for 24 hours), it starts to rain. Continuous rain is the order of the day, but luckily it ends after 10 minutes. We like the large fortress wonderfully. The tour of the outdoor facilities and the inner courtyard is free of charge, we are already too late for the paid tour of the exhibition rooms (open until 5:00 p.m.).We enjoy the wide views over the area around Coburg and the great fortress.We hike along the summer path through the Hofgarten towards the city center. The Landestheater Coburg has set up a stage with a grandstand for the summer festival in the middle of the Hofgarten and has been playing here from the end of May to the end of July - hopefully the weather will change ... When it rains, it's no fun sitting outside.From the Hofgarten we already have a great view of the Renaissance Ehrenburg Palace. Our way now leads us to the market square - past beautiful houses. The town house, the town hall, stepped gables, town towers - all very splendid. We cannot stop being amazed. After so many impressions, we deserve a break and stop at the Loreley inn. We enjoy a Gampertsbräu and a fine meal (salad with chanterelles for me and jelly with fried potatoes for Joachim).Well strengthened, it is now back up the mountain to the motorhome. Caught just before the finish and the rain, now it doesn't matter. 😉We spend a wonderfully quiet night away from mass tourism with just two other mobile homes. 👍🚐🥾

Interesting place. Einstein's contribution to the Greens election campaign isn't bad either.
I have just added an entry to my “To Do” list in the “Destinations” section! 👍🏼
Dear Peter, dear Sigrid, dear Bernd, since the destruction caused by the Second World War in Coburg was less than 5%, there is a lot to discover here.
Coburg is a pretty town 👍🏻 greetings from both of us 🙋♀️🙋🏼♂️
