about us

You are going to love Silkeborg Højskole

“What is special about Silkeborg højskole is clearly the spirit of the school. To meet a lot of new, young people who love being here and who have chosen it of their own free will and therefore want to stay 100%. To live close to 130 people for a whole semester – it’s amazing.”
