#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in Coburg
Schloss Rosenau, called in English The Rosenau or Rosenau Palace, is a former castle, converted into a ducal country house, between the towns of Coburg and Rödental, formerly in Saxe-Coburg, now lying in Bavaria, Germany.
Schloss Rosenau is perhaps most notable as the birthplace and boyhood home of Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, who in 1840 became the consort of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
It should not be confused with another house of the same name at Waldviertel in Austria.

  • Amazing restoration. Great tour guide.
  • It is worth going for the architecture and interior, but considering the wealth of other castles/palaces in the region, I'd prefer other locations over this. Sadly, picture taking isn't allowed inside (no idea why). If you visit in the winter months, bring a warm jacket or better keep your winter coat on. Our guide was very knowledgable, but sadly told us more about Queen Victoria and her family than about the Schloss itself (though, to be fair, the 2 are directly linked). Signage around the castle is appaling, and I can't see any excuse for that.
