ABOUT Christiansfeld

At first glance, you can already see that Christiansfeld town centre is something special. Houses and streets are completely symmetrical and laid out according to a carefully planned town plan.

As one of Denmark's World Heritage Sites, Christiansfeld is a cultural experience in a class of its own. In the UNESCO town of Christiansfeld, the Brethren Craftsmen created their idea of the perfect society - with symmetry, community and equality.

Visit the Sister House where Christiansfeld unfolds the history of Christiansfeld and the Brethren Congregation. Your admission ticket gives you access to the museum's changing special exhibitions, the Brethrenmen's Museum and exploration of the Sister House.

Take your time to discover the city, whether on your own or with one of Museum Kolding's expert guides. And don't miss out on tasting the famous honey cakes and feeling the poetic atmosphere of the city.

Christiansfeld - a suitable visit for the whole family.

Read more about Christiansfeld's history, the Brethren Church, the Herrnhuter star, gingerbread, stoves and architecture.
