Koldinghus – Jylland's last royal castle – has played a significant role in the history of Denmark throughout the more than 700 years of its existence. It has served as a part of the border defenses, as a royal residence, and as the seat of the local representatives of the Danish central government. Following the disastrous fire of 1808, the castle ruin attracted considerable attention as a picturesque ruin, providing a popular source of inspiration for artists and poets. For more than a century, the ruin has been the object of restoration programs and gradual change to a museum of cultural history and a venue for cultural activities.
At night the ruin is lit up by light, making it a great sight visible from all over the area.
