When hubertus hereditary prince of saxony-coburg and gotha starts talking about callenberg castle, he quickly gets into the black: "on the one hand, i'm fascinated by the history of the building – and then, of course, it's also very beautiful!" For him it is "one of the most beautiful forest castles of all", which is why he would be happy if it would (again) establish itself with many coburgers as a place that one likes to visit, where one likes to linger. "For example, in connection with a gentle winter walk through the callenberg forest!"
Prince hubertus, who at the beginning of the year took over the management of the ducal foundation administration from his father prince andreas and thus also took over responsibility for callenberg castle, does not like the term "museum. Instead, he describes callenberg castle as "a piece of family history", in which the ducal art collection see is. The german schutzenmuseum is also an important pillar, but above all prince hubertus wants to create the image of a "living callenberg" transport.
The castle was particularly lively on sunday, 9. December. This is the premiere of an event that is intended to provide a deliberate counterbalance to the often hectic and commercial pre-christmas period. At "christmas magic on callenberg families in particular are invited to come and enjoy a few hours of contemplation from 2 to 6 pm.
