This small country palace, the birthplace of Prince Albert who later married Queen Victoria, is in a lovely setting a short distance outside Coburg. We had a tour from a staff member who said she didn't speak English, but since the four of us on the tour were all English speakers, she gave it a go and actually did quite well in the language. The house is lovely and well furnished, especially notable for the woodwork on floors, walls, and ceilings. The main caution we have for future visitors--and the reason for the title of this review--is that to protect the floors on the second floor, you are required to remove your shoes and to don huge fluffy slippers. The floors are very slick and so are the bottoms of the fluffy slippers. The tour guide was zipping around as if she were on ice skates and the two young men in our group had no difficulty. My wife and I, however, both in our seventies, spent the tour tightly clutching each other, thinking as much about hip fractures and palace interiors. Anyone with balace or stability issues, therefore, should avoid this tour.

Very nice staff, small gift store, cold inside during the winter. The tour guide occasionally would switch to English so I could get more information that wasn’t written on the English pamphlet they lent me. Not too much furniture, and in some places very intense restoration had to take place because, for a period of time, the palace was used as an old age home. If you’re a fan of British royal history, then you will especially like this place.

We set up a private English tour ahead of time, and our guide was great. Upstairs you have to wear slippers, to protect the wooden floors, and skating around was fun. No photos allowed inside, unfortunately.

While waiting for the tour, we had lunch at the park restaurant, which was Victoria and Albert's tea pavilion. There's a salad bar free with your meal, and I highly recommend the banana sorbet for desert. The waitress was very conscientious about my allergies, and gave us free postcards when she told us about the history of the building.

While waiting we also visited the Modern Glass Museum in the orangerie. Normally we wouldn't have paid to see modern art, but were so glad we did. The pieces are very interesting, and not what you would expect.

We spent a very enjoyable afternoon here.

A lovely palace out in the country, the birthplace of Prince Albert. The Marble Hall in particular is worth a visit. Queen Victoria visited it often with Albert and the family and it is easy to see why.

As though the Rosenau castle seems a small place it is filled with interesting history of the royal history. It was a birth place of prince Albert who was married to queen of United kingdom of the Great Britain Victoria. The tour was very informative and we learned a lot about the history of the royals and the family of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha.

Impressive castle with plenty relating to Queen Victoria. The grounds are very pretty and great for taking a short walk after your visit. Take a guided tour to get the most of out of your visit. We had a very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. Great views and surroundings.

We arrived at Schloss Rosenau after a beautiful walk through the countryside from Rödental station (about 20 minutes stroll - following Google Maps walking directions will get you there perfectly!) We used our Coburg combi ticket which is €13 for Rosenau, Ehrenberg and Veste Coburg palaces and the glass museum - it’s amazing value and you can visit them anytime within a month! We arrived on the hour for the 11am tour and a lovely man welcomed us, we said we spoke very little German and he said he could speak “a little English”, so he gave us information sheets to use during the tour. We were with a German family on the same tour but in fact the tour guide gave us a personal English-German tour - he translated almost everything for us and gave so much detail during the hour long tour. The palace is beautiful and there is so much history in those walls, especially if you are interested in Queen Victoria and the dukes of Saxe Coburg. It’s a gem of a palace and it was our favourite tour by far - worth the walk and worth the trip!

This is the place of birth of Prince Albert, who is married to Queen Elizabeth of England. The castle was beautiful and the surrounding area was very pleasant too. Great place to walk around and spend an afternoon.
