Begin your visit at Koldinghus History Center

We recommend that you start your visit at Koldinghus History Center. Here you can explore the castle's history told through models of the castle as it looked at different times through history. The center tells through pictures and articles how the Danish kings used Koldinghus as a defense of the kingdom's southern border, as the venue for important state acts, as a residence and as a center for local administration through centuries. Here you will learn about the Spanish soldiers in 1808, about the fire, which left the castle in ruins, and the unique restoration.

Attached to the exhibition you can watch movies with a dramatized tale of the past and present of Koldinghus (duration approx. 16 minutes)

Facilities for the disabled

The south and east wings are accessible to those in wheelchairs. Certain areas of the west and north wings can also be accessed with some assistance (please contact one of the wardens). A lift is located in the east wing of the castle. Toilet facilities for disabled people are located in the basement near the lift.

A brochure for disabled visitors (Danish only) is available by request at the museum office (tel. +45 76 33 81 00) or at the ticket office.

Wheelchairs are available for disabled visitors.​


With the exception of guide-dogs for the blind, animals are not permitted in the museum.

Bags and luggage

We regret that we have had to introduce certain precautions for security reasons. All big luggage, suitcases, rucksacks/backpacks, camera bags, shopping bags, etc. must be put in lockers. All bags must be placed in lockers (deposit DKK 10/EURO 1) except ordinary bags measuring no more than 30x19x12 cm.


A fully licensed restaurant is located in the north wing of the castle. Madkælderen features a selection of food and beverages for children and adults.

Madkælderen, tel. +45 75 50 47 98.

Groups of children (kindergartens, schools, etc.) may take a packed lunch to eat on the premises by special arrangement with the museum.

Adults, however, are requested to buy their meals in the café. 


Taking photographs with ordinary cameras and video cameras is normally permitted everywhere in the museum. This can, however, be prohibited in conjunction with special exhibitions.

Flash photography is not allowed.

Photographers' tripods are not permitted in the exhibition areas. 

Museum shop

The museum shop is located by the ticket office. Postcards, books relating to the museum's collections and exhibitions, posters, replicas of display items, toys, souvenirs and more are available in the shop.

Please do not touch the exhibits

A museum exhibit is often the only one of its kind, and can also be fragile. Many of them have survived over a period of many centuries, and must be preserved for the continued pleasure of the generations to come.

Even gently touching paintings, sculpture or furniture can result in damage, especially if repeated by thousands of visitors.

Please help us to preserve our cultural heritage.
