There are different opportunities to go on trips outside off the school during your stay. But once every year we visit our friends in Hungary.
In autumn, we go to Budapest and the rural area nearby. Budapest the capital of Hungary and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Budapest has played a big role in the European history and has old imperial buildings and new architectural wonders. You will find Roman baths, theater and music in old factory buildings.
Budapest and the surrounding area has been inhabited for more than 2000 years. Romans, Ottomans, Hungarians, Austrian, Germans and Soviets, who have all placed their footprints and marks, have ruled the city. Budapest has had several periods of greatness, which can be seen on buildings and architecture.
Vestjyllands folk high school has since the mid 90 has had a co-operation with the ecological inspired agricultural college in Kishantos, just outside of Budapest. About 200 Hungarians has been students here in Denmark, so we have many unique contacts to the local population. During our stay in Budapest, they will be our tour guides, so we see and experience more than ordinary tourists.
The trip is for all the students in the fall. There is an additional cost of DKK 1400 for the trip.
