Bornholms Højskole

Bornholms Højskole is located in the middle of one of Denmark's most beautiful and fascinating natural areas. It offers unique opportunities to combine teaching with the surrounding nature, the beautiful beaches and the cozy towns on a daily basis. At Bornholms Højskole, we have it all right here, there is nothing we have to travel to find !

About the school

In the middle of Almindingen, Bornholms Højskole is located in a wonderful mix of forest, fields and cliffs. But with its flat red and white buildings, the school casts light and warmth into nature, and on the school's shelter site with a fire cabin, you can let yourself be surrounded by the lush nature in the more distant parts of the natural areas of the school.

With only 10-15 km to beaches, rocky coasts and Bornholm's beautiful harbor towns, the school is centrally located for pleasant and spectacular trips.

At Bornholms Højskole, you get time for your subjects, for your many new friends, for using your physical strength, for thoughtfulness, for fun and enjoyment, for ingenuity and for nature. You will have time to immerse yourself in the clay, in the glass, in the visual arts, in the silver, in the body, in the sustainable entrepreneurship of agriculture and for outdoor adventure life.

Bornholms Højskole works as a sustainable school that takes responsibility for the environment and climate on all levels to the greatest extent possible. You can help push the development. In the spring, we help put young people's voice into play at the Folkemødet.
