We were in Kolding for the day, and were recommended this museum for its shop and café as well as the exhibits. Really enjoyed it. There were exhibits of furniture and clothing as well as art. Most, but not all, of the legends are in English as well as Danish, and the galleries are light and airy. The buffet lunch... More

Very interesting modern art and Scandinavian furniture on show, but it can also depend on the theme of the exhibitions which change every couple of months. So maybe visiting their web-site might be a good idea. Lovely cafe with a great view of Kolding Fjord.

Trapholt has during the last decades been first movers in relations to art and displaying visual solutions. Some were provocating and amazing, the view of the water and city is from Trapholt amazing... Check it out...

If you like Scandinavian furniture and modern art, then this place is well worth a look. It is located just outside of town and had a great view of the ocean from the cafe. There are several rooms devoted to Danish chairs as well as a variety of smaller galleries featuring local artists. When we visited there was a fantastic... More

Really liked the way the museum is displaying everything. The location speaks also for itself, the price though makes you expect bigger expositions and a bigger museum. The staff is also very friendly !

Beautiful surroundings, interesting exhibitions, well worth a visit. Together with Koldinghus, Trapholt makes Kolding a must-visit location for travellers in Denmark. Check the program for current exhibitions - but go regardless:)

My travel partner is a design enthusiast and the aim was to the the summer house (you can only see it on a guided tour, so do your research), but I had a great time as well! The museum is just the right size to not be overwhelming and the exhibitions were intriguing and striking. When we visited there was... More

A little pilgrimage to the Arne Jacobsen holiday home, it was a brief and very worthwhile stop. Lovely surroundings and the former home of the famous architect / furniture designer was surprising.

Trapholt lies on to Kolding fjord, so the view from the museum is spectaculary. The museum itself is quit big, but also looks (on the inside) as a concrete house from the 80. Not that charming. The round extention is an exeption and when you arrive, it looks very nice. When we where there, ther where around 4 exibithions....maby 5-6.... More
