With a population of just 60,000, Kolding is nevertheless one of Denmark’s 10 largest towns. Situated in the so-called ‘Golden Triangle’- Denmark’s fastest-growing industrial region outside the Greater Copenhagen - Kolding is also arguably the country’s bestlocated town when it comes to road, rail and air transport: the main east-west and north-south roads pass through Kolding; Denmark’s second largest airport, Billund, is 30 minutes away, and there are frequent inter-city trains from Kolding station to all the major cities. The German border is close by and Hamburg just 2 hours away.
Apart from the IBA, Kolding has around 3000 students in various higher education institutions, a substantial number in relation to the size of the town, and therefore offering an especially good social atmosphere for students. Despite its modest size, Kolding has cafés, discotheques, galleries and museums that have made it one of the most popular locations in the west of Denmark.
Kolding has splendid sports areas, a beautiful environment and many organised social events. You will certainly not be bored here! Kolding works actively on the development of its education sector.
This means that the city council and the municipality are very positive towards students and they do their best to back up new ideas and initiatives.
