Holidays to Coburg

Coburg is a lively city, rich in tradition. The seat of power of the dukes of Saxony-Coburg and Gotha for a long time and the meeting place of European high nobility, the City became part of Bavaria only in 1920 by a referendum.  Nevertheless, the former residence has remained a lovely blend of Franconia and Thuringia.
