Danebo Folk School ... Minneapolis, MN

Discover the Danish Experience

Why are Danes said to be the happiest people in the world?  Certainly, it’s their culture.  But it’s also an emphasis on lifelong learning – a tradition carried forward from the first Folk School, founded in Denmark in 1844.

Exchange the hustle-and-bustle of modern life for restoration of your spirit at a week-long retreat on the banks of the Mississippi River.

Or choose from an a la carte menu of individual classes, tours, and other activities.
