Built more than 700 years ago, Koldinghus has been the home of numerous big and small historic events. In 1808, the castle was partly destroyed by a great fire, and today it serves as a museum – but the story continues. Grand weddings, romantic dinners and relaxed lunches still take place inside the old castle walls, where Madkælderen combines new and old, modern and historic. During the day, the restaurant serves a classic Danish lunch buffet and in the evening (Thursday to Saturday only) guests can indulge in a four-course gourmet dinner. Both lunch and dinner are inspired by the history and produce of the castle and its surrounding area. “Our restaurant is part of the castle, and we use the history of the place and its beautiful setting in our work; yet it’s done in an authentic and down-to-earth manner – there’s no pretentiousness.
