Rose Garden (Rosengarten)

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Playgrounds, Parks & Gardens
The rose garden (Rosengarten) owes its creation to the 100th anniversary of the Coburg horticultural society in 1929. The society succeeded in securing the organisation of the “German Rose Show” in the anniversary year. The artfully designed area with ponds, watercourses and arbours, in which 15,000 roses of the most diverse varieties bloomed, was one of Coburg’s main attractions for a long time. In 1947, the city took over the maintenance of the park. In the 1960s and 1980s, the rose garden was transformed into an inner-city recreation area. In the southern part are the palm house and the flood fountain by the Coburg artist Ferdinand Lepcke. A memorial stone reminds us that the waltz king Johann Strauss became a citizen of Coburg in 1887. A city beach with a bar has become very popular and is a meeting place for young people during the summer.
In the palm house there are five bird aviaries, an orchid section and a variety of palms, cacti, bamboo species, and many other tropical plants. It is open daily, including Sundays and public holidays, from 9 am to 4 pm (May - September: 9 am to 6 pm). Admission is free of charge.
