Four buildings under one roof

In 1952 by the shore of lake Sankelmark the Academy Sankelmark was opened. Four educational institutions now share the roof of the building: The European Academy Schleswig-Holstein, Academica Baltica and the Minority Competence Network (MKN) have been added. 

With its educational services, reaching over a hundred each year, the academy center is acknowledged as an important forum reaching beyond the boundaries of the country Schleswig-Holstein. These educational services are multifaceted and are settled in the topics of politics and history, society and culture, religion and ethics, as well as literature and fine arts. 

Academy Sankelmark

From the start, the location in the German-Danish border region has put forward an important emphasis in the academy’s offerings: Liberating exchange towards politics and culture beyond national borders.
