Welcome to Kalø!

"Højskolen på Kalø" is a danish folk high school located in one of the most beautiful areas in Danmark. We are surrounded by sea, forest and small hills.




We offer a course in Danish Language and Culture (Dansk Sprog og Kultur) and we receive students every year from all around the world. We teach Danish at several levels - starting from level 1 with beginners to the highest level with more advanced Danish. At Kalø, you will pick up Danish culture and language very fast! Danish is our language of teaching, because the best way to learn is to use the language - but don't worry - you will learn and we are always here to help.

Staying at Kalø means that you will live together with students from all parts of the world, and that there are plenty of opportunities for international friendships and relation-building both in classes and in the freetime. At the school, there are also many Danish students who participate in the Outdoor Ranger program.
