Nicolai is a cultural centre of excellence in the heart of Kolding. The complex consists of five independent buildings, but they also act as one cultural whole with cinema, art exhibitions, concerts and cultural playground.  Nicolai is the centre of the old “Latin Quarter”, which originally comprised five school buildings erected in the period 1856-1908. The complex therefore shows how school construction evolved during this period and testifies to the city’s population growing explosively. From the end of the 1940s all the buildings as a whole were called Saint Nicholas School. 

Today, the old buildings, with their versatile architecture and excellent opportunities for cultural exercises, are home to Nicolai. There is an exciting and award-winning urban space now in the old school yard. It is an atmospheric breathing space and the setting for many different activities throughout the year - fairs, concerts, entertainment, games, workshops and urban experiments.
