THE CONCEPT When darkness falls over Koldinghus, the spirits of the past emerge and haunt the old royal castle. Experience the horror of Haunted Castle as you are led through the history of the haunted castle. The story is brought to life through horror-based, interactive total theatre by using specially designed sound, lights, decorations, and actors in stunning costumes and special effects. As a participant, you are the main character in your own Gothic horror film, where you are tasked with investigating a series of gruesome events at the castle. The experience lasts about an hour and a half. Participants are led around the castle through a series of eerie rooms and installations in groups of approx. 10 people. If you arrive in small groups, you will be put together with other participants. At the Haunted Castle, the focus is on horror, mystery, atmosphere, collaboration, and puzzle-solving. Experience the historical events at Koldinghus through horror. Read about the concept and find practical info here.
