Welcome to Gotha

Dominated by the grand Schloss Friedenstein, it is well worth a visit, if you're in the area. Friedenstein, an almost-overwhelmingly grand early-baroque palace, was built by Duke Ernst I (1601–75), the founder of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, whose descendants reinvented themselves as the House of Windsor after WWI and today occupy the British royal throne.
