What’s happening in Coburg? Sights and more
Veste Coburg is not the only sight of the region:
Morizkirche is a Protestant church dedicated to Saint Maurice and is the town's oldest church. Its earliest remaining structures date back to the 14th century, which superseded a church from the 12th century. It is dominated by the 13 m high Renaissance alabaster epitaph for Duke Johann Friedrich II. Our webcam provides a view from Morizkirche to Coburg.
Coburg Old Town is well preserved, and visitors love to stroll through the alleys:
Coburg Old Town, surrounded by the remains of the former town wall, is home to many historic buildings, fountains, monuments, and ensemble structures. Coburg Market Square dating from the 15th century is connected to the Old Town via seven alleys. Coburg Town Hall and Sparkasse Coburg-Lichtenfels can be found on the south side of the square. A monument of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha forms the centre of the square.
