  • Castles & Palaces, Sights
Callenberg Castle near Goldberg Lake rises on a wooded hill about six kilometres northwest of the town. First mentioned in a document in 1231, the castle has been owned by the ducal family of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha since 1826 and was occupied by the last reigning Duke Carl Eduard until 1945. In the “Sweden Year” of 1932, his eldest daughter Sibylla became engaged there to the Swedish crown prince Gustav Adolf. In 1982, Prince Andreas of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha bought the neo-Gothic castle with the help of the ducal family foundation. The estate’s own art collection includes important portraits of the Saxe-Coburg and Gotha family, valuable furniture, porcelain, a selection of weapons, long case clocks, and table clocks. The “German Rifle Museum” (Deutsches Schützenmuseum) is housed in one wing.
