Meanwhile, if you are organising house moves to Kolding, here is a short guide to living in this historic city.
Kolding, on the mouth of the Kolding fjord, is one of the fastest growing cities in Denmark in terms of population and industry. It is an appealing city, rich in history, with as many as 90,000 inhabitants in the wider metropolitan area. Among its many pros are its fascinating attractions, thriving nightlife and excellent transport links. And, as Denmark’s second largest airport, Billund, is just a 30 minute drive away, it is easy to visit friends and family back in the UK. Some people move here to study at one of the city’s four further educational institutions, including the University of Southern Denmark and the Kolding School of Design, or to work in the city’s growing IT industry.
A Brief History of Kolding
There has been a settlement in the area since Stone Age times, although Kolding really came into its own in the Middle Ages when the Koldinghus Castle was built, which was visited by Danish Kings throughout the ages. The city thrived until the 17th century when various wars with Germany and Sweden put an end to the prosperity. In the late 19th century the town saw rapid growth in population, trade and industrial development as a railway was built and various businesses and factories sprung up. The years after World War Two were difficult as the period saw the closure of many industries. But by the 1980s fortunes changed for the better and Kolding is now a thriving, modern city and an important centre for IT industries. It is also home to the advanced, environmentally-friendly Nordic Synergy Park, which has been designed to attract technological and research intensive companies from all over the world.

Attracting as many as 800,000 shoppers a week, it has around 120 shops and eating establishments as well as a multiplex cinema.
