Things to do in Kolding

Legoland Billund
Lego lovers rejoice! Opened in 1968, the world’s first Legoland park is situated next to the original Lego factory. Over 50 exciting rides await you at the resort, along with eight themed lands to explore and a variety of entertaining events. Gaze in awe at models of the world’s most recognisable landmarks, with more than 65 million Lego bricks used in the building process.
Koldinghus
Since its construction in the 13th century, this castle has been through a fair few guises. It’s been a royal residence, a wartime fortress, a mound of smouldering ruins, a restoration project – and more recently, a museum. Step inside to dig deeper into Jutland’s history and to gaze at the art exhibitions inside.
Kolding Miniature Town
Before you explore modern-day Kolding, why not dig into its history at Kolding Miniby? This miniature scale model of the town showcases its appearance during the 1860s, right down to the last detail – the replica of Staldgården’s royal stables alone includes 116,000 small bricks. Here you can amble around Gulliver-like, peeking into timber-framed houses with colourful brickwork and roof tiles.
Legeparken Kolding
Slides, swings and swirly things. That’s what Legeparken Kolding is all about. Built around a large man-made lake, this municipal playground is a treat for families. In addition to all the kiddie rides imaginable, you can borrow rowing boats and pedal go-karts. There are also BBQ grills on site, so don’t forget to pack the ‘pølser’ – the classic Danish hot dog sausages.

The people of Kolding! Everyone we met were so happy to help and welcome us. Makes all the difference! Will be back. The layout of the city is nice and we love these old buildings some datings to the 1550s!

Very nice old town, and the city center is quite modern and good eating places are all around I would suggest the tapas places right besides the Kolding apartments place (PAPS)

Beautiful town with a decent nighlife for the size, which is also perfect from making day trips to towns like Ribe, Christiansfeld, as well as to Odense or Aarhus. Generally strongly recommended in any trip to Denmark.
