The Museum at Koldinghus

Above the centre of Kolding stands the castle of Koldinghus.
It was on this site in 1268 that the Danish King built a fortress for the purpose of guarding the border between the kingdom of Denmark and the Duchy of Schleswig.
The earliest parts still standing date from the 15th century. The fortress was rebuilt as an unfortified castle in the mid-16th century, and the Great Tower - also known as the Heroes Tower - was added around 1600. At that time the King often stayed at Koldinghus.

Excellent temporary exhibitions, and impressive silver collections of faience ware and war memorabilia.
