Koldinghus, Kolding

4.3
At Koldinghus, see where Danish kings received foreign ambassadors, presided over the high court, and held banquets and balls. The castle was originally built as a fortress in 1268, but it also served as a royal residency. Today, it houses a museum. See the collections of old furniture, Roman and Gothic church culture, and old Danish paintings. A fire that broke out in 1808 left the castle in ruins. The north side, facing the castle lake, is the oldest part still standing. See how some other parts--such as the south wing and the chapel--were only partially restored in order to maintain the memory of this dramatic episode.

  • For over 50 years, I have had my time at Koldinghus Castle. Wonderful experiences for children, grandchildren, and over the years filled with Museum exhibitions, permanent exhibitions and the trekking. Participated in many concerts and various events. Visit their website-this year celebrated Koldinghus 750 years. The place is always worth a visit.

  • Castle on top of a hill. Antiques, new expositions too. Rebuilt after a fire, see the remains preserved inside. View from the tower 360 degrees.Costume room for kids to rent and play. Activity paper for children. Bathrooms and refreshments in the basement. Lots of stairs. Not suitable for wheelchair users. Uneven stone pavement to the castle and in the castle court.
  • Amazing, they even give you the chance to dress as they used to for freee. Amazing, Nice beautiful people working there. Definitely recommend :)
  • Would have liked to see some armor and weapons but there was none of that. Otherwise it was what you might expect from a small castle
  • Wonderful old Santa Claus house!Our daughter enjoyed it a lot,and there is hot tea and chocolate:)
  • Amazing temporary exhibition of Mari Keto!
