Hardly any other place in Coburg’s city centre has undergone such a metamorphosis as the Albertsplatz, which lies to the south in the Ketschenvorstadt district. Where once parked cars took up almost the entire area, today people stroll over the newly designed pavement to meet for coffee or to go shopping. The Albert’s square was named after the city’s most famous son: Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Even today, the Luther School built in the neo-Gothic style and the imposing facade of the Rudolph Weiss candy factory (1860 - 1974) are parts of a neo-Gothic building belt that runs right through the old town and is considered unique in its unity. Remains of the former city wall are also still visible. As part of the extensive renovation work, Albertsplatz now features a playful water installation.
