Beautiful manor house, functional main building, creative workshop building

Brandbjerg Højskole is one of Denmark’s most beautifully located folk high schools. It is a short distance to Vejle and Jelling, on the edge of Grejsdalen, with the steep slopes and the majestic trees. The grounds of the school cover no less than 40 hectares of park and untouched natural forest. The buildings range from the old atmospheric manor house to the functional main building with 110 double rooms, each with a private toilet and shower, to the creative workshop building where you can dream big.
