If you wish to explore your resources and your strengths creatively, intellectually, and physically without having to pass admission tests or exams, Rødding Højskole may be the answer to your wishes. At our folk high school we offer a wide range of courses and activities, as well as the companionship of students of many nationalities, religious and cultural backgrounds, all participating on equal terms. As the teaching at Rødding Højskole is in Danish, you have to speak at least a basic danish to join the school and the classes.

The folk high school is a unique Danish institution inspired by the theologian and politician N.F.S. Grundtvig's ideas of a school for the uneducated adults to prepare them for participation in the dawning democracy in Denmark.

Rødding Højskole in South Jutland is the first and oldest existing Danish folk high school, founded in 1844 by the Danish professor Christian Flor whose purpose first and foremost was to waken the young peasants' awareness of being Danish, as part of the fight for preservation of the Danish language and culture in the borderlands between Denmark and Germany in the nineteenth century.
 

 


Practical information

You find Rødding Højskole with its magnificent garden and beautiful buildings on the outskirts of Rødding, about 60 kilometres north of the German border. Due to expansions through the years, the school consists of several buildings, old and new ones - Flor's House originates from 1832 - which has created an exceptional, romantic atmosphere. At Rødding Højskole you can get lost in twisted hallways and hidden passages.
