Koldinghus Castle

Koldinghus is a Danish royal castle in the town of Kolding on the south central part of the Jutland peninsula. The castle was founded in the 13th century and was expanded since with many functions ranging from fortress, royal residency, ruin, museum, and the location of numerous wartime negotiations.

The castle lost its strategic importance and thus fell into disrepair. In 1808 during the Napoleonic Wars the building completely burned down due to an accident. Afterwards it remained a ruin until the reconstruction began in 1990. The castle was partially rebuilt in a modern style and today hosts the historic museum. From the hill you have a commanding view over the city Kolding.
