The Tourist Attractions of Kolding:
While Kolding isn’t full of tourist attractions there’s certainly enough here to keep most tourists happy for a couple of days at least. Kolding is a nice town, not too large, and so it’s easy to get around on foot to see the attractions in the city centre.
The former royal castle is one of the top attractions of Kolding. Koldinghus was founded in the 11th century and has had a number of uses since first being constructed. King Christoffer I had it built in 1268, though the oldest parts of the castle now still standing date from later additions made by King Christoffer II between 1441 and 1448. Further additions were made over the next few centuries and today visitors can come and see the restored castle and its museum which has a variety of exhibits on display.
Church of Saint Nicholas
The Church of Saint Nicholas (St Nikolaj Kirke in Danish) is another historical attraction in Kolding. It is said to be one of the oldest churches in Denmark, dating back to the 13th century.
Trapholt Art Museum
For a taste of culture in Kolding visit the Trapholt Art Museum. The art museum focuses on Danish art and has a good collection of different genres from 1900 onwards. And if you want to see some art from international artists there are some non-Danish exhibits too.
Kolding Botanical Garden
Known in Denmark as Geografisk Have, this botanical garden is just a few miles outside the city centre and accessible by bus if you don’t have your own transport. The gardens have a large collection of flowers, plants and trees, and the café in the greenhouse is a popular spot for tea or coffee after a stroll around the gardens.
Less than an hour’s drive is the original Legoland, in Billund. This is a very popular attraction especially if you’re visiting Kolding with children, and includes a miniature land, rides, and numerous other attractions.
When Should You Visit?:
Summers are the best time to visit Kolding for a number of reasons: temperatures are warmest between June and August, and there’s a little less rainfall then. You’ll also be able to enjoy long days because it stays light here until well into the evening. Winters in contrast are cool and the days are far shorter.
