Enjoy a little nostalgia aboard a vintage train as it huffs and puffs along the scenic route from Kolding to Vejle and from Vejle through the Grejsdalen valley to Jelling. The vintage trains run on selected Sundays in July and August.
During the summer, vintage trains traverse Kolding-Fredericia_børkop-Vejle and then the 14-kilometre scenic valley railroad - one of Denmark’s steepest tracks - from Vejle to Jelling where travellers have the opportunity to visit the Jelling Monuments or the Royal Jelling visitor’s centre before the train returns to Vejle.
Generally on the second Saturday in December, a vintage train takes visitors to the old flag stop station in the Grejsdalen valley. Here Christmas trees are sold, which travellers can bring back to town on the old freight wagons. Christmas trimmings are also on sale as well as traditional Danish yuletide delights, such as mulled wine.
