Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Museums, Sights
Since 2004, the north-west wing of Callenberg Castle in Coburg’s Beiersdorf district has been home to the German Rifle Museum (Deutsches Schützenmuseum). It is run by the German Rifle Association and displays fascinating objects on 300 m² of exhibition space. The most precious exhibits include one of the most famous shooting targets, the “Red Man” from Kronach (1720), two pistols of Pierre de Coubertin - founder of the modern Olympic Games -, a collection of original torches from the Olympic Games (Berlin 1936, Munich 1972), and all torches from the Summer Games from Seoul 1988 to Beijing 2008. Visitors can become active themselves: There is an archery simulator on the first floor of the museum.
