Overview
More
The house was built in 1589, in the typical architectural style of Kolding, as a gable house facing the street. This tradition originated from the North German trading towns and spread to the Danish towns along the Little Belt during the Middle Ages. There are only a few surviving examples left in Denmark of this construction method, which gave many owners direct access to the street. Amongst these, there are three in Kolding: Borch's Gard on Akseltorv and Helligkorsgade 18 and 20. In 1704, shoemaker Jørgen Hansen bought the house and it was in the ownership of his family until 1915. It was then bought by a group of Kolding citizens, who wanted to ensure that it would be preserved for posterity. The house was later given to Kolding municipality, which used it as a tourist office for many years. Today, the building is used as an exhibition area for artists. In the gable facing the garden is a cannonball from the battle of Kolding on 23 April 1849.

Not sure if you can go inside - yet it is still located in the centrum of Kolding, and is a cool place to see. If you pass by, take a look.
