The stable farm during the 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.

History of Kolding

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.
