Coburg

Or to translate the title, Windsor ;-)

The 20th was spent in Coburg, home of the Saxe-Coburg-Gotha family (that's the one whose British arm renamed themselves the Windsors around 1914). There's a lavish hilltop castle dominated by an enormous museum, and an even more lavish palace in the city itself. Sadly photography isn't permitted in the palace.

I'm about to get a train to Bamberg, for a day there.

Tomorrow is a public holiday in Bavaria (South-East Germany), and Nürnburg's(Nuremburg) hostels are already full for Thursday night; can't see them being any less full until Sunday night, and München (Munich) is likely the same. I may have to skip Bavaria and move on to Ulm.
