Bespoke walking and running
Is the freedom to incorporate nature into your daily exercise high on your list of priorities? Then join us on a walking/running route and explore the hotel’s nature surroundings. We’ve created three different digital running routes and added them to the RunGo app, which uses turn-by-turn navigation to show you which route to run, the remaining distance and which roads or paths you should take. Just like a car’s GPS system.
The shorter three-kilometre route is also recommended as a walk-and-talk route for a healthy break during a meeting or seminar. RunGo is free and available for iOS and Android – for both smartphone and Apple Watch.
After a long day, there is nothing as refreshing as a dip in our pool followed by a sauna. The facilities are free to use for our guests.
Board games are more popular than ever nowadays and everyone can take part. We have a varied selection of board games that you are more than welcome to borrow. Just ask at reception.
Want to challenge your family, colleagues or friends to a fun game? Just ask at reception. We have games such as kubb, swingball, darts, table football and billiards.
Koldinghus – Jutland's last royal castle – is much more than a museum. See the remains of the ruin that tells of the catastrophic fire in 1808, experience the story up close through vivid tales in the castle’s large halls and see the treasures of the Danish kings and queens in special exhibitions. Koldinghus offers a series of special exhibitions, family activities during all school holidays, concerts, lectures, a Christmas market and a royal costume workshop. This year, Koldinghus will display H. M. Queen Margrethe II’s private embroideries for the very first time in the exhibition “The Queen's Embroidery”.
Trapholt is a museum of modern art and design, located in Kolding and opened in 1988. The museum is also known as “Jutland Louisiana”, which may be due to its location at Kolding Fjord with a combination of old and new architecture – or because it also focuses on modern art. The museum also includes a furniture museum with contemporary Danish furniture design and collections of handicrafts, primarily ceramics and textiles. There is also a collection of more than 500 chairs from the 20th century, making up Denmark's largest collection.
Geographical Garden is a 14-hectare botanical garden with rare plants organised by their geographical origin. You can visit South America and see the Brazilian giant rhubarb or the almost 100-year-old trees in North America. There are many different rhododendrons and more than 7,000 roses.
Danish Museum of Nursing History
The Danish Museum of Nursing History is beautifully situated by Kolding Fjord in the old tuberculosis sanatorium, and is Denmark's only specialist museum on nursing. The exhibitions show the history of nursing, the patient and the healthcare system in Denmark from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Universe Adventure Park
The adventure park where having fun is a science. At Universe, children of all ages can experience science, technology and innovation first hand. The park is filled with a wealth of amazing experiences and attractions. During your visit you can try lifting a car, building your own water rocket or roaming around a virtual world.
Legoland is one of Denmark's most famous amusement parks, beloved by families with children and children of all ages. There’s plenty of action, speed and fun here for the whole family to enjoy.
Have a wild day to remember at Givskud Zoo – Zootopia. Walk around and visit the animals in the zoo. You can even walk inside the enclosures of the lemurs, Barbary macaques and goats. Go on safari in your own car or on a safari bus and get close to the animals on the savannahs. In the dinosaur park, the giants of the past are shown through life size models and in four exhibitions featuring totally up-to-date knowledge. There is plenty of space for everyone here, and lots of beautiful nature. The kids are sure to enjoy themselves on the fun playgrounds and in the activity camps. In June 2021, Denmark's largest penguin enclosure will open here. So there will be even more penguins frolicking on land and in water. Food and drink are available for purchase but you are also welcome to bring a packed lunch.
Bridgewalking takes place at an altitude of 60 metres and offers a view of the Little Belt. You can travel to Sydney or to the Little Belt. In both places you have the chance to walk on top of a bridge. Experience the height. The butterflies in your stomach. The spectacular and unobstructed views. Enjoy the water, the ships, the view of land, the wind and the weather. The faint shaking of the bridge as a train crosses it.
NEAREST PLACE FOR A DIP
If you’re looking for a refreshing summer dip, look no further than Kolding, because you’ll find plenty of beach options in the area. We recommend Binderup beach, only 20 minutes’ drive from the hotel, where you can enjoy the sights, smells and vibes of a hot summer’s day by the water with a view of Kolding fjord.
NEAREST ICE CREAM BAR
Nothing beats ice cream on a hot summer’s day, and some would say that ice cream is essential every single day during summer holidays. You can sink your teeth into the tastiest homemade waffle cones and ice cream at the small Slotsisen shop just 15 minutes’ walk from the hotel. Louise at reception wants you to know that they don’t hold back on toppings at Slotsisen! Enjoy!
NEAREST SHOPPING STREET
If you enjoy browsing and shopping, a visit to Kolding’s charming pedestrian street is a must. You can stroll through the city centre, browse and shop while you enjoy the stunning views of Koldinghus Castle. You will find the pedestrian street just 10-15 minutes’ walk from the hotel.
Marienlundskoven forest is our neighbour, only a 2-minute walk from the hotel. The forest is ideal for a lovely walk, run or bike ride, and we recommend a stroll out to the gorgeous lake in the middle of the forest, where you can enjoy the mirror-like reflection of beech trees on a beautiful summer’s day. Take each other by the hand and enjoy the fresh air and the quiet, deep tranquillity of the forest.
There are countless cultural sights in Kolding and the surrounding area. Among the most famous are Christiansfeld (Denmark's only UNESCO World Heritage city) and Kunstmuseet Trapholt, which also serves the most delicious coffee in their cafe. A local tip is to visit Koldinghus Castle, 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. The other attractions can be found approx. 20 minutes’ drive from the hotel.
If you are on holiday with children, we can recommend the playground 5 minutes’ walk from the hotel. You can compete in mooncars, climb, swing or enjoy a packed lunch made by Ninna in the kitchen.
NEAREST PICNIC SPOT
The lawn and our beautiful garden are ideal for picnics or a game of kubb, which you can borrow from reception, or borrow a blanket and enjoy a relaxing nap in the grass while the summer sun warms you. Another idea is to sit back and relax with a good book and a refreshment on our large terrace.
NEAREST GOLF COURSE
You are never far from a golf course when you stay at Comwell Kolding. Choices here include Kolding Golf Club or Birkemose Golf Centre.
