At the Casino Munkebjerg Vejle, Munkebjergvej 125 (tel. 76-43-50-00), you can play roulette, blackjack, the slot machines, and -- if you're willing to learn -- "Viking poker." A photo ID is required to gain entrance, and there is an admission fee of DKK50 ($8.50/£5). The major cultural venue for the city is the Musik Theatret Vejle, Vedelsgade 25-31 (tel. 79-43-20-20), the setting for operas, musicals, shows, and theater. You can check with the tourist office to see if any events at the time of your visit appeal to you.

Also consider a visit to the complex Torvehallerne, Kirketorvet 10-16 (tel. 79-42-79-00). A large, spacious palm garden, Væksthuset, forms the center of a complex that includes restaurants, a hotel, a cafe, a stage, and a pub. There is always something going on here -- jazz, dancing under the palm trees, concerts, or theatrical performances. We can't predict what will be going on at the time of your visit, but it's always a lively place to drop in on at night.

Vejle is also a town rich in pub life, our favorite being Seven Oaks, an old English-style pub at Dæmningen 42G (tel. 75-72-07-77). Another good choice is the dance club Crazy Daisy, Nørregade 65-67 (tel. 75-83-61-33).
