Harteværket is one of Kolding's newest experience centers. Here are activities and experiences about water, energy and movement.

Just 3 kilometers outside the city lies Harteværket - an experience center for both children and adults.

Here you have a good opportunity to find out more about energy, water and movement in beautiful historical settings. Bring your own packed lunch and eat it in the picnic house.

The Power Plant is a hydroelectric power plant - The water drives the turbines, which via the generators convert the water's fall power into electricity.

Harteverket is an attraction for both adults and children.

Inside the beautiful historic building you can experience how water makes power. If you are lucky, there is enough water for the big turbines to start.
The interactive sandbox invites you to lots of fun while the adults can explore the exhibition with old-fashioned electrical appliances.

The beautiful surroundings around the Harteværket invite you to walk and stay in the fantastic nature.
Visit the water playground, with many hours of play or the new trampoline park with 8 different trampolines. Take a walk along the large pipe where the water enters the turbines with up to 6,000 liters of water per second.

At Harteværket you can rent a canoe or a kayak and sail all the way to the city center. Enjoy nature in a different way, have lunch in the city center and sail back again. You can also sail under the motorway bridge and enjoy your food brought with you.

There are different routes you can sail with different lengths, all with the opportunity to sail to the shore in different places and enjoy nature on land and eat a food basket.

In Kolding town center you are located right at Søndertorv, where there are canoeing p-places, so you can enjoy the benefits of one of the nearby cafes or take a walk around the town center.

See the tours on the Harteverket website and book your canoe here as well. Also get an overview of how far you can go on the trip, remember that the Harteverket is upstream so more time must be calculated when sailing the canoes back to the Harteverket.
