Theatre square (Theaterplatz)

Short facts

  • Coburg
  • Sights
The square to the west of the Coburg state theatre has been called theatre square (Theaterplatz) since 1875. With the construction of the theatre building in 1840, space was created for it by demolishing the old city wall and filling in the city moat. After a comprehensive redesign in 2007, an urban bus station was created in the heart of the city. Today, cafés, bars, and a popular beer garden (Prinzengarten) have settled around the square. If you are lucky, you can enjoy musical interludes in summer from the rehearsal rooms of the state theatre opposite. At the northern end of the theatre square is the monument to Field Marshal Friedrich Josias from 1911, which was reinstalled in its original location in the course of the reconstruction.
