Koldinghus was built in the middle of the 13th century, and in the centuries that followed it was one of Denmark's most important royal castles. In 1808 there was a fire that left the castle in ruins – a romantic relic. Today the castle has been restored and houses a museum which is a centre for cultural activities and special exhibitions of international standing.

British National Trust meets IKEA??? It's certainly quirky, lots of the exhibits wouldn't be out of place in an English National Trust house. I quite liked the modernist interpretation of what are recreated spaces from the parts that burned down all those years ago. I get the point that the architects didn't want to recreate it as it originally was... More

If you are in DK and you planning to see more then ordinary please plan it in your agenda. Central location slow you to do a great walk around the lake to see the castle from different angle. If feel for a drink walking streets surround the central so plenty of nice locations there. Huge castle with great birds view... More

Our cruise ship stopped in Fredericia, which is a little town that can be seen in 2 hours. So we hopped the 15 min train ride to Kolding. What a treat, the town itself is nice with lots of shopping. Koldinghaus was a favorite castle of King Ferdinand and he sent his son here to be educated, It burned down... More

Visiting the museum of the ruin castle Koldinghus is an interesting experience. I especially liked the exhibition about the castles history and the restoration, which is quite special as it had been chosen not to rebuild the ruin, but rather incorporate the ruin walls in a new interpretation of the castle. We saw all the rooms, towers and the dungeon... More

There is 2 things to notice. First of all the nice restaurations of the once burned building. The creative design in the restauration is worth taking a look at as it self. Next, the shifting exchibitions that goes through the rooms, is always great and nicely arranged.

I visited the castle last year. It is a stunning place. There are so many things to see that's unbelievable, you can experience past's and present's architecture designs at once. It took us about 3 hours to go around and see every corner of it, but was worth it. The view from the top (the stairs up there seem to... More

Wandering around Koldinghus was such a pleasure. There are so many nooks and crannies to explore. It's a great place for photography or drawing enthusiasts. Some of my favorite pictures and sketches come from this magical place.

Koldinghus was a delight to wander around. Plenty of the information was available in English. The castle itself is fascinating and I especially enjoyed seeing the main chapel and white room.
