At IHS we actually know how privileged we are. The scenery around our school is amazing. Right on the oceanfront, the forest and the city are very close by. The park area of our school spans to 28 acres and it ties our fantastic buildings beautifully together with the beach and the pier. Everyday the water invites you to surf, go boating, take the canoes out or even take a fresh morning dip.
The forest called Sønderskoven is located only 1 km south/west of our school, it's perfect for crossfit, triathlon and has tranquil trails for walking and running. If you are up for a city walk, the pretty pierfront takes you right by the castle to downtown, within 15 min. There are cozy cafés and of course a lot of awesome stores to spend some extra money in.
Sønderborg is a "young town" with a lot of different higher educations. An example could be the South danish University and Sønderborg Business college. 25% of the citizens in Sønderborg are below 30 years of age, it's considered the highest percentage in Denmark.
While visiting the South of Jutland, you will experience a very historic feel, a dynamic area with a lot of development and innovation close to Europe.

Our park also offers a great 2 km long MTB trail with a lot of challenging turns and obstructions. If you want to take it further, 600 meters more and you will go on a single track straight into the Forest, Sønderskoven.
IHS is the proud owner of 28 mountain bikes in a really good quality, which primarily are used for Adventure races and team building activities.
