kolding - Design and honey cakes

Taste a honey cake or experience Jutland‘s major intersection with motorway connections in all directions. Close to Billund Airport and as part of the Triangle Region, Kolding is today a town that is growing strongly, and has always had a large foreign trade.
In the Middle Ages, it was a significant town and the King and his court frequently stayed at Koldinghus.
