Das Barocke Universum

Friedenstein Palace - Palace museum

The palace museum in the north and west wing mainly displays the unchanged chambers of the Dukes of Saxe-Coburg-Altenburg and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha as well as the Ducal Art Chamber where the house’s tradition of collecting art start.

The museum therefore gives you an insight into both the private and representative life at Friedenstein Palace. The stunning rooms in Baroque, Rococo or Classicism style also house handicrafts, one of Germany’s largest coin cabinets and curiosities like an original hat belonging to Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, alongside luxurious furnishings.
