Let's go! You cycle north-east out of Coburg, along Rottenbach and Dorfgraben, past the clay pit and into Rosenau Castle Park. Take some time for a walk through the over 200-year-old landscape park. Your first destination is a modern new museum building on the eastern edge of the park opposite the orangery.
The European Museum of Modern Glass is a branch museum of the Coburg Art Collections. It has been located in the Rosenau Palace Park since 2008. Artistically designed utility glass, objects, sculptures and installations made of glass are exhibited on two floors. The basement houses the largest collection of ceramics in southern Germany with vases and bowls, wall reliefs, sculptures and conceptual objects. Glass and ceramics are closely linked as materials and some artists are represented on several floors at once.
The heart of the museum is formed by works that have been shown at the Coburg Glass Awards since the 1970s. In addition, there are changing special exhibitions and events. During their visit, museum guests learn interesting facts about the production and processing of glass. During workshops, they can watch glass artists at work in the lampwork studio or try their hand at designing glass beads themselves during special events.
Don't hesitate to pay a visit to Rosenau Castle. Or fortify yourself in the park restaurant, the classicist former teahouse, for the onward journey.
When you are ready to say goodbye to Rosenau Castle Park, head east across the Itz. You cross Rödental and turn left at Röden onto the cycle path "TIPP - Tour ins Puppenparadies". This leads you through open fields to the Bavarian doll town of Neustadt bei Coburg. There you leave the cycle path at Röden to turn right into Halskestraße and cycle on to Hindenburgplatz.
Toys for a living - the Museum of the German Toy Industry is primarily a technical museum. It collects, examines and displays objects from the fields of production and machinery, materials and techniques, and is dedicated to embedding the toy industry in the economy and politics of the last 250 years. The exhibition impressively illustrates the living and working conditions of home producers and factory workers during the heyday of the toy industry in the region.
The children's museum tells the story of the development of the toy industry in a child-friendly and fairytale-like way under the title "Santa's Workshop". In addition, the museum offers numerous special events and changing themed programmes for children and families.
The museum's collection of traditional costume dolls is unique in the world. From 1930 onwards, dolls were produced directly in Neustadt especially for the exhibition and fitted out with true-to-scale, detailed traditional costumes from around 100 countries and regions in Europe, Asia and America.

Are your children tingling to play themselves now? Would you like to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet before you head back? Then take a detour to the Villeneuve-sur-Lot Park . Treat yourself to a sweet treat from Fabio's ice cream parlour during a short detour via the market square and Steinweg before crossing the Röden and the railway line once again and heading to the leisure park via Ketschenbacher Straße.
With its extensive green spaces and well-tended plant and flower beds, the spacious leisure park is one of the most beautiful parks in the region. It was redesigned in 1999 on the occasion of the Small State Garden Show and invites visitors to stroll and relax with its walking paths, seating and rest areas.
The park is also a meeting place for families, young people and sports enthusiasts. There is a hard court for inline hockey and inline skating, the "Fun Park" for skating, a football pitch, beach volleyball courts and more.
Children can let off steam on the adventure playground with pirate boat and on the climbing wall. A water playground with an Archimedean screw, raft and large mud area awaits them on the shallow pond bank. Next door, on the spacious wooden terrace in the lakeside café, there is coffee and cake or a snack.

It is time to set off on your last stage, which will take you back to the banks of the Röden. As on the way there, you cycle along its course, but this time in the opposite direction along the railway line first to the south and after the bridge of the federal road you follow the signposted cycle path along the banks of the Röden.
Are you one of the collectors of the famous Hummel figurines? You will now pass their factory. If you like, pay a visit to the Hummel shopping world with its adjacent exhibition. Just behind it, turn left and cycle via Dörfles bei Coburg back to your starting point.
