Located in the north of Bavaria, Germany’s large southern state, Coburg is a town with links to royalty. Long the home of a ruling princely family, Coburg was a common holiday destination for the royals of Europe until the early 20th century. In addition, the town is home to one of Germany’s largest castles, the Veste Coburg, and remains relatively untouched, having avoided major damage in the World War II.
