Facilities at Brandbjerg

See the pictures below

The old white mansion is surrounded by a mote with ducks and a beautiful park. With a grand stove, a conservatory and lounge with soft armchairs you experience the authentic atmosphere of the old building.

In the light modern part of the school you find the classroom, the dining hall and the student rooms. You can also play table tennis or table football, watch a film on the wide screen in the assembly hall or have a good time by the amphitheatre in the atrium yard. And you will find the cosy living room with the open fireplace.

In the sports hall you can try the new and challenging boulder wall! Check out brandbjergklatreklub.dk. You can also find facilities for playing basket- volley- or handball, a fitness room and a great variety of gymnastics tools.

If you want to play music, you will enjoy spending time in our MusicHouse. Here you can also keep your own instruments if you like. The Brandbjerg recording studio is located next door in the building named ‘Værkstedbygningen’. Here you will also find the core rooms for the main subjects EventLab, Kompas and Outdoor. In EventLab the end wall is taken up by a map of the world– and the room itself has a swing and many cosy corners for working with projects. In the light and beautiful ateliér of Kompas you will find yoga mats and futon mats for meditation. In Outdoor you will find stunning pictures of kayaking- and hiking trips. The students plan their field trips here, but mostly they are outdoor! In the ‘Værkstedbygning’ you will also find our art room and the drama hall. The drama hall is not only used for theatre, but also for concerts, workshops, gala dinners, parties and much more.


There are many good reasons why the social atmosphere is so good at Brandbjerg. One of the physical reasons is that the student rooms are not spread across a lot of buildings, but are close together in the main school building. All rooms have got their own bathroom, balcony and ADSL connection. You can choose between a single or a double room. If you choose a double room you can either share with someone you already know, or you can let luck reign and look forward to meeting your new roommate. If you choose a single room it costs an additional fee of 200 kr pr. week.

Arkitecture and art

The renowned Danish architects Friis and Molkte have designed the modernistic part of the school witch is characterized by its pure lines, high functionality and abundance of light. The painter and sculptor Ole Swalbe is the artist behind the integrated artworks on the walls of the building. He is represented at many of the Danish art museums. The artist Knud Nielsen is behind some of the striking paintings you can find at Brandbjerg. His work is associated with the abstract expressionistic works of the COBRA group. On the lawns surrounding the school and in the park behind the mansion you can find the work of sculptor Jens Buhl.
