Practical Information

A unique Danish experience

Folk high schools (or summer schools) are a uniquely Danish experience. Denmark has more than 70, which offer courses and accommodation for people of all ages during the summer. Stays can range from one week to months and all participants eat together in the evenings.

Learn and relax

Courses range widely, from sports to creative disciplines such as art and philosophy. The price for a one week course is around 4,500kr including full board and a two-week course about 6,000kr. Most courses are taught in Danish.
