There’s plenty to do in Coburg! This Upper Franconian town is a model of conviviality and hospitality. Celebrations, festivals, concerts, readings and exhibitions are held almost all-year-round. Whether hot rhythms and good vibes at the International Samba Festival, authentic brass band music at the marksmen's festival or hip jazz bands at the Coburg Designtage event - there’s something for everyone here.
A town with party fever
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 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 and the sky of lights around the Prince Albert monument invite visitors to stroll and linger.
This year, the Coburg Christmas Market takes place from 1 to 23 December 2023. It is open daily from 11 am to 8 pm. Food and drinks until 9.30 pm.
Venue of the state theatre
Beginning in 2023, Coburg’s state theatre will undergo extensive refurbishment for several years. For this period, the new GLOBE COBURG at Nina Bellosa square will serve as an interim venue. Its rotunda-like shape is based on the London Globe Theatre, famous for its performances of Shakespeare’s works, and will accommodate up to 500 theatregoers.

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.
