Kunstsammlungen VesteExtraordinary collections of armor and weapons of war, partly originating from the former armory of the fortress, hunting weapons and hunting equipment, precious handicrafts, the oldest preserved carriages in the world, the great Hofstube with the largest completely preserved cast iron stove, pictures from Dürer, Cranach the Elder and Grünewald make a visit to Coburg Fortress into a one-of-a-kind experience.
Among the historic rooms, the Luther room is of particular interest, which is where the reformer lived for half a year in 1530.

The grand Jagdintarsienzimmer (Marquetry Hunting Room), a completely wood-paneled room finished in 1632, as well as the large Hofstube and the festival hall completed in 1504 must also be seen as well as the world famous cabinet of copper engravings with 330,000 items, one of the largest in Germany (use by prior arrangement by telephone).
