The Coburg District became part of Bavaria in 1920, making it one of the newest regions you will visit. It also combines three very different landscapes, allowing you to enjoy the meadows and brooks of Franconian Switzerland, as well as the shady forests of Thuringia.

Towns & Villages in the Coburg District
Golf, hiking, marathons, and cycling are but a few of the recreational opportunities the Coburg district invites you to try. In lieu of arduous sightseeing, you are encouraged to immerse yourself in the local culture, which is rich by any definition.
Go first to Seßlach to experience its fascinating Nature Center, devoted to the biological peculiarities of rare local animals and details of their relationship with the environment. Then visit Bad Rodach, where you will come across the ThermeNatur spa, with three outdoor pools, two indoor therapy pools, steam baths, and new sauna facilities. How enjoyable! :-)
The ornate Rosenau Castle in Rödental is something of a museum unto itself, with 36 acres of gardens and hundreds of 19th-century artifacts on display. And in Untersiemau, you can take a stroll along the Planets Way, an educational walking path detailing aspects of our solar system.
