Folk high schools

 

Vejen Municipality has a long and proud tradition of what are known as højskoler, folk high schools. The folk high schools in Rødding and Askov are Denmark's oldest (dating from 1844) and longest running (since 1865) respectively. (See Daish Generel Education Consulatations video about the history of Generel Education - in Danish.)

The folk high schools take an active part in the work of local clubs and societies. An oasis of culture, which also benefits local citizens. Read more about  Rødding Folk High School's activities   (in Danish) and Askov Folk High Schools activities (in Danish)
