ABOUT BRENDERUP HØJSKOLE

The main building is much older than the school itself. We are located in Brenderup's old inn, that already when we moved here in 1986, had been here for 75 years. Hence the spirit of the place reaches long back in time, that you cannot avoid feeling when you enter through the door. 

We can host about 50 students, which means we are a relatively intime school. It means, among other things, that as a student in Brenderup Højskole you will get very close to others. When you thrive here, it is because you would like to take part in the close community.  You give and take with the same willingness and with an open mind.

The whole world in BRENDERUP HØJSKOLE

Everyone should have a nice time in our folk high school. We have furnished the school so you feel comfortable and feel at home. We have sustainable premises where you can unfold your talent and be with like-minded people from all over the world. We are a modern globally oriented high school - but it all started like this...........

THE HØJSKOLE

HISTORY

Brenderup Højskole is a contemporary Danish højskole. It was founded – in what was formerly Old Brenderup Inn – in 1986, with specific emphasis on International Peace Studies. In this new millennium, however, the scene for peace work has changed. Globalization, the shift in world power away from Cold-War bilateralism, the emergence or re-emergence of national players on the world scene, and the increasing ambiguity of national borders. These are but a few of the conditions that have changed in contemporary peace work.
Here at Brenderup Højskole we believe that, if there is but one precondition for the effort for peaceful coexistence in the world, it must surely be the unbiased interaction of people from different cultural backgrounds. This is why it is crucial for us to welcome students such as yourself from other parts of the world to our school. It is in the meeting with that which is different from ourselves that we may deepen our understanding of ourselves. And self-understanding is the backbone of peaceful coexistence with others.
As host for a learning experience for Danish young people and those from other countries, Brenderup Højskole continues the tradition of the højskole in keeping with the ideals of its founders. Brenderup Højskole offers an exchange of life experience, ideas and viewpoints among people from different cultures, building on responsibility to the community and respect for the individual.
