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.

  • Really nice museum, nice restore, both for children and adults very nice Silver collection + Prince Henrik's jade collection was very interesting.

  • The majestic castle, on a hill. The area around the beautiful. All such inaccessible. Inside is quite ordinary. As in Vyborg:) Would not say that is required to attend.

  • Super nice view and already beautiful walk around it. Unfortunately it is close on Sunday so we could not look inside

  • Nice Bar. Good guide. Alot of stairs. Nice view at the top. It has a great background story.
  • Although I had only an hour to see the whole castle, then it was a decent tour. The place is interesting and lies on the top of a hill in the center of Kolding. There is a good amount of things to see and I would suggest to spend around 2 hours in there.
  • Very interesting castle. We really enjoyed how they mixed some modern architectural elements with the old stones. Quite impressive!
  • Interesting look at the Renaissance era of Denmark. Restored beautifully. Not extensive - so a couple of hours will cover it, particularly with kids.
  • It's so beautiful and love the way that they respected the architecture in the renovation. Love it.
