Callenberg Castle (Schloss Callenberg) is a castle on a wooded hill in the Beiersdorf district of Coburg, six kilometres from the city centre. It was a hunting lodge and summer residence and has long been the principal residence of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and is still owned by Andreas, Prince of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. A large and architecturally important family chapel is contained within.

Due to its history and neo-Gothic architecture it is a listed monument. Since 1998 it has displayed the ducal art and furniture collection and from 2004 it has also housed the German Rifle Museum (Deutsches Schützenmuseum).
