Christmas market

Christmas magic and the scent of mulled wine

During Advent season, the historic market place is transformed into a nostalgic Christmas land with glowing, fir-green decorated gates and fairytale flair. Freshly made products such as mulled wine, punch, sweets and savouries are on sale in the huts. Craftsmen from the region show their skills and offer their goods for sale. For the little visitors there is a nostalgic carousel. On Sundays, the Christ Child visits the market and hands out sweet surprises. Artists, choirs and bands provide musical entertainment in the evening hours. The beautifully decorated huts, the sky of lights around the Prince Albert monument and the cosy warmth of the open fireplace invite visitors to stroll and linger.

This year, the Coburg christmas market will take place from 25th November 2022 to 23rd December 2022.

Kongress­haus Rosengarten

Coburg's conference centre

The conference centre has been a social, cultural and economic centre in Coburg since it was first built in 1962. It reopened again in 1987 after a two-year renovation project. This small but attractive complex is an impressive proof that the Kongresshaus Rosengarten can be the perfect setting for successful events.

RIDING HALL (REITHALLE)

Studio stage with charm

The studio stage of the state theatre captivates with its atmosphere and entertaining shows. There is virtually no separation between the audience and stage, allowing easy interaction between both and providing scope for various open forms of theatre.
