From Baroque to the Modern Age

The city, that was once a ducal seat has a lot to offer

The City of Gotha can look back on a history spanning more than 1,250 years. Shaped by successful economic development and the former ducal court’s understanding of art, the city exudes a very special charm. Gotha’s citizens and visitors to the city enjoy a first-class museum scene and high-quality art here, as well as numerous experiences and adventures.
