The town of Kolding is located at the head of the fjord of the same name in the southern Denmark. Having somewhere around ninety thousand residents, Kolding is the seventh-largest city in Denmark and more importantly a crucial transportation and manufacturing spot for the region. Because Kolding is relatively small, it is easy to get around on foot, however, if you are planning on visiting more remote places, using the buses is a good idea as they are quite cheap and flexible.

If you are interested in history, you can visit Koldinghus, a royal castle from the thirteenth century, which is the town's main landmark. It was badly damaged through the centuries, but has since been renovated and serves as a museum nowadays. You can also stop at the Church of St. Nicholas, which is one of the oldest churches in Denmark. If you are a fan of art, especially of modern art, you can pay a visit to Museum Trapholt, where you can see an exhibition of plenty of Danish arts, as well as some foreign works. If you are traveling with children, then you should not miss the huge aquatic park Castle Swimming Hall, right by the Castle Lake. Another good way to spend an afternoon is by going to the botanical garden Geogarfisk Have, which features plants from many different countries and also has a great section for kids.

Your options for hostels in Kolding are very limited, but are not nonexistent. Some nice dorms can be found about ten to fifteen minutes from Kolding's lovely old town.
