Everyday life at Brenderup Højskole
A day on the Folk High school
Every morning we gather after breakfast in the Lecture Hall to get a good start on the day together. Here we sing a song together either in Danish or English, and there will always be a small presentation that reflects on the day before we start the rest of the day together. The morning assemblies are organized by students or by the school’s teachers.
It is our believe that a Folk High school is something that takes place all the time, and everyone at the school, both the students and the staff, gets involved in it.
Our music rooms and workshops are open all evening and at weekends, and many students spend a large part of their free time in the common rooms, the music house, the re-design workshop or the ceramics and art room.
Much of what goes on at school is organized by the students themselves, e.g. morning assemblies lectures, parties and cultural evenings. It is only the students themselves who set limits on which activities should be included in the program.

Study trips with Brendere
All long stays at Brenderup Højskole can choose to join one of the school’s two study tours. The two study tours goes to Bremen and Morocco. We love to travel and we love to be inspired by the culture of other countries and take the experiences home to Brenderup.
In Bremen you get a cultural experience of a lifetime. Here, the past, present and future are in focus through stories through the city’s streets. Bremen has so much history to offer and in addition they can cook well in the city, so coziness and community are also the focus of this trip. We visit e.g. the art museum, the climate house, airspace center and take a day to Bremenhafen.
In Morocco, you get the culture up close. We live with a local family who cooks for us, looks after us as a group and you get the camels, the beach and nature very close.
Parties are held both by the school and by the students themselves. When the school throws a party, it takes place in the dining hall or under the beech in the garden, because we have Denmark’s most beautiful and perhaps the largest hanging beech in the garden. We cover up with tablecloths and flowers and sing a sea of songs from the Folk Highs school songbook. If the students have a party, it is usually in the cinema or in Grandma’s room.
Experience the danish hygge
Every week the school has “Round about” and contact teacher groups on the schedule. Here, students have the opportunity to organize joint activities or discuss current topics. At dinner there are announcements to everyone and here the students are always good at giving information about joint trips planned by the students themselves. There is always room for everyone.
