Vallekilde Folk High School was founded by Ernst Trier in 1865 and the buildings were designed by ther architect Martin Nyrop who also designed Copenhagen City Hall. The style has reminders of Nordic greatness as the "Øvelsessalen" has the style of a Viking Hall. The picture Hall which is often in use for public concerts and theatre is quite spectacular with its many paintings from mythology and the bible.
Vallekilde High School is still active as high school and is actually one of the most popular educational institutions in Denmark.
Vallekilde itself is a small charming village with many quaint houses and the home for many artists and handicraft artists.
