Study trips

Feel the world with Brenderup Højskole

Brenderup Højskole in the world

We love to travel and be inspired by the culture of other countries and take the experiences home to Brenderup.

During long stays at Brenderup Højskole, you can choose to join one of the school’s two study tours.
The two study trips go to Germany and Morocco.

Marokko study trip

The trip

We will live locally and follow the cooking where we eat. We are going to the market, in the mountains, out surfing and just let ourselves be carried away by this exciting country.

Those who are interested in art should work with ceramics, but if you are more into building, we look at the local ancient traditions of building with clay and lime in beautiful colours.

It’s a chance to travel in a new way, where we dive right into the heart of the culture together with a new group of friends that you brought with you from school.

Germany study trip

The trip

Germany hides many stories.

We have been to Bremen where the cathedral, the town hall and the Roland statue go back to the 17th century, when faith and the power of the church were challenged by the common man and the people’s will to decide for themselves. Therefore, in the square you can experience this history, this power struggle and the unique atmosphere that exists in this place. Beneath the square you will find the German wine cellar, because this is where Germany stores the very best white wines from all over the country. Here you come down and taste the delicacies and hear about the history behind this cellar under the city.
