In the heart of Kolding you will find Staldgården. The history of Staldgården goes back as far as Koldinghus. The walls of Staldgårdens contain stories of kings and queens, of regiments and horses, but they also contain the grim tale of the occupation of Kolding, Gestapo accommodation and the use of torture. From Staldgården the whole history of Kolding opens up. Visit Zelle II, Denmark's only preserved Gestapo cell, where you can hear the story of the occupation and Gestapo presence in Kolding, or take a guided tour around Kolding town. Staldgården - a glimpse into the history of Kolding's occupation.
Staldgården har spillet en stor rolle under anden verdenskrig. Under besættelsen havde GESTAPO sydjysk hovedkvarter i Staldgården. Her indrettede de nogle fængselsceller, som danske modstandsfolk blev anbragt i mellem de brutale forhør. Mange af modstandsfolkene ridsede deres navne ind i væggen. En af cellerne, Zelle II, i Staldgården er som den eneste i Danmark bevaret som et dystert minde.
Kolding originated where a north-south road traffic once had to stop to cross the Kolding river at the bottom of the Kolding fjord in the early Middle Ages. Very few towns in Denmark can trace their history back to the pre-Valdemar era.
