“Beautiful castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

I highly recommend visiting this castle. It has a beautiful garden that looks out onto a field with deer. It takes an hour or more to see everything in the castle. Some rooms you can't enter but the doors are class so you can see inside. There is a parking lot and it takes about 10 minutes to walk up to it.

“Worth a trip if you are in the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We were drawn by curiosity and a photo exhibition. Castle entry with the exhibition was only 5 Euro. If you are fascinated by the British royal family, the castle becomes much more interesting, as there is seemingly a portrait of every member of the family, except for 'black sheep.' The extensive marksmanship exhibit is among the least interesting I have ever seen and worth skipping. What is quite nice is the view of the countryside. The castle is relatively new and derived from more interesting and more important structures. There are the usual firearms, porcelain and rich furnishings, but nothing stands out above what you expect in a castle of this sort; if anything it seems a little less grand. The staff (one lady) was very pleasant, helpful and attentive.

“A Wonderful place to visit!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

Only 5 Euro/person (and part of the Coburg combo ticket) and GREAT value for the money! We went on a lazy Saturday afternoon and were able to walk through at our own leisure and explore on our own. There are great family heirlooms and paintings throughout the castle. You can really tell that the family is involved in how the museum is ran. Highly recommend a visit and would return if I"m in the area again.
