In the centre of the historical old town with historically preserved architecture: City Hall, City House, court pharmacy (first and therefore Coburg’s oldest pharmacy), statue of Prince Albert. Every Wednesday and Saturday a weekly market takes place here and during Advent is the Coburg Christmas market.

This is in the heart of Coburg town center. It is a beautiful square or Platz surrounded by many beautiful historical buildings, including the Rathaus. There is a small food cart in the square selling Coburg bratwurst, which is a rather delicious snack.
