Train approaching!


On 1 November 1866 the railway line connecting the towns of Fredericia, Kolding, Lunderskov and Vamdrup was opened. The Museum at Koldinghus celebrates the 150th anniversary of this groundbreaking event with the exhibition ‘Train approaching! ’. Based on a modern interpretation of the classic model railway, the exhibition tells the story of the impact of the railway on the towns along the line and relates some of the events, amusing as well as sad, that have unfolded along the line.

The opening of the railway line between Fredericia and Vamdrup in 1866 had a crucial impact on development in Kolding, Lunderskov and, not least, Vamdrup. All three towns now had a railway station, which gave them access to a much larger world of transportation options. The infrastructure was significantly improved, import and export was facilitated, labour mobility increased, etc.

The Museum at Koldinghus plays an active role in celebrating the upcoming 150th anniversary, in part with a special exhibition in cooperation with the miniature town Kolding Miniby and Felderbanen. The exhibition focuses on the impact of the railway line on the three main towns.
