Horse's head at the riding hall in Coburg, Germany

The Coburg Riding Hall (Coburger Reiterhalle) stands near to the Ehrenburg Palace (Schloss Ehrenburg). It was built according to the plans of Georg Konrad Rothbart in 1852. Theodor Behrens created the sculptural horse’s head in the tondo directly above the pointed arch portal. [German]

Today, the neo-Gothic sandstone building houses one of the stages of the Landestheater Coburg. The main building of this theatre stands on the palace square (Schlossplatz), which is only a few steps away.
