Ehrenburg Palace and Castle Park are located at the foot of Festungsberg Hill on which the famous Coburg Fortress stands. The palace was built in the middle of the XVI century on the site of a Franciscan monastery, and immediately became the seat of the Dukes of Saxe-Coburg, who moved into it from Coburg Fortress. At the end of the XVII century, after a fire, the palace was rebuilt in the Baroque style. In the XIX century, the extant neo-Gothic façade appeared. Thanks to it, the palace resembles the castles of England. The interior also changed - furniture and other items in the French Empire style decorated the rooms of the Dukes.
There is a museum inside the palace. Its main attraction is the Giants’ Hall with 30 statues of giants. It was there from the XIX to early XX century were celebrations were held with the participation of the Dukes of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and their famous relatives - the most famous monarchs of Europe, including the British Queen Victoria, German Kaisers and Russian Tsar Nicholas II.
Castle Park is the green heart of the city and the favorite place of its inhabitants. It was destroyed in the XVI century and evolved into an English park over time. You can see a bronze monument there to one of the "fathers" of the park, Duke Ernst II.
