The Kldinghus Castle is just amazing and how it was not knocked down after the fire in 1808 is great. The building frame of bricks must have been well engineered. The modern internal rebuild is something to behold as it fits in ultra modern with...More

A Danish royal castle dating from 1268, but burnt down during the Napoleonic wars in 1808. Restored in 1991, now exhibits collections of furniture, paintings ceramics, and Danish Design silver. They also have smaller exhibitions of various themes throughout the year.

And wonderful gallery with a great restaurant in the basement and friendly helpful staff - every museum should strive to be this classy! Pictures are from the exquisite and moving exhibition by Finn, Mari Kato

It is a building with short story. Danish history is connected to the place. Unfortunately, both from architecture point and important events - nothing special here. Other side is Kolding town does not offer too much so it is better than nothing.
