South Jutland, Tønder

South Jutland's cities and towns

This region offers you some of the oldest towns in the country. Visit Kolding with its impressive castle ruins, the Viking town of Ribe or Christiansfeld, set to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Kolding

Kolding is an old royal city that offers you many historic sites. Visit the beautifully restored Koldinghus Castle ruins which tower over the city and the castle lake. Or head south of Kolding to see Christiansfeld, the most beautifully preserved old Moravian town in Northern Europe. Founded by the Moravian brethren in the 18th century, the town is utterly unique as it was planned before it was built and has an impressively structured layout. Christiansfeld is a candidate to be included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Ribe

Wander the streets of the oldest town in Denmark. Situated on flat marshland, with wonderfully well-preserved houses, streets and monasteries from medieval times, Ribe is a unique visitor experience. The town also homes a fantastic Viking museum and you can climb to the top of the impressive cathedral’s Commoners’ Tower, to take in amazing views of the old town and surrounding area.

Tønder

Denmark's oldest market town is famous for lace and special bay window houses in Uldgade. Just near by and easily accessible, you will find the small town of Møgeltønder, known for its pretty streets and Schackenborg Castle, where HRH Prince Joachim and his family resides.
