In the centre of the historical old town with historically preserved architecture: City Hall, City House, court pharmacy (first and therefore Coburg’s oldest pharmacy), statue of Prince Albert. Every Wednesday and Saturday a weekly market takes place here and during Advent is the Coburg Christmas market.

The town of Coburg is very well preserved, so you can still see many of the original historical buildings from a long time ago around the market platz. The architecture is typical of Bavarian style. The platz is very busy and lively on the weekends...More
