Kolding is a great town to walk around and see where old world charm meets the modern world. Near Kolding Hus Slot you can find a larger modern library as well as a walking street with shops and cafes. Buildings are a mix of new and old. Interesting one of a kind cafes and restaurants are found in town as... More

It took me 2 minutes to get to the town centre from my hotel and 2 additional minutes to walk it all! It's undoubtedly nice and cosy, however don't expect this to be a town where you can spend a full day or even 2 hours.

Very cozy city center. Nice place to stroll and the shops we went to had very nice and friendly staff. There was a halloween theme so carved jack o'laterns everywhere. Gave a lot of atmosphere to the place

have to say on walking around Kolding my first thoughts were it was too quiet. However lovely, safe feel to the place, lots of nice bars and restaurants and nice by the canal.

The city centre of the small city of Kolding has a pedestrian walking street with shops and restaurants. It is nice, but not exactly a special attraction in itself. Koldinghus is near the centre and can be visited before or after a shopping or dining expedition. Overall I found Kolding a very average city with little to see or do.

The walking street in Downtown Kolding is worth a visit. A good variety of shops. The nearby streets are also worth a look around to get a feel for this lovely town.

As I ended my review about the Koldingshus I will start here: free parking! At least the parking lot I was at, Told...something. Pardon my Danish. Anyways. Lots of shops, cafe's and giftshops. Extremely nice people at the supermarkets, shops, cafe's and giftshops. So yeah, basically anywhere they're nice. English is perfect. Streets are way more tidy than with our... More

People told us the Denmark was expensive, but that is only the Hotels (they are crazy). If we had a decent place to stay, we would have stayed more than 2 nights. People are very friendly and communicate well. This is what we like. The restaurant and markets were all nice with affordable prices.

With reasonable options of restaurants and stores. Good to walk around and enjoy the environment. In Christmas time there is nice decoration and couple of events (like the Lights one).
