The Royal Danish Collection Koldinghus

The Royal Danish Collection Koldinghus contains fantastic stories, special exhibitions of the highest quality and beautiful art.

The construction of Koldinghus started in 1268, when the Danish king wanted a castle that could guard the border between the Kingdom of Denmark and the Duchy of Schleswig.

Today, Koldinghus is much more than a museum. See the remains of the ruin, which tells of the catastrophic fire in 1808, experience the story up close when there are live stories in the castle's large halls and see the treasures of the Danish kings and queens, which are displayed in changing special exhibitions.

The constant exhibitions are among others:

  • The history of Koldinghus including the restoration
  • Christian the 4th at Koldinghus

Additionally the museum shows excellent temporary exhibitions.
