Duborg-Skolen ( Danish for Duburg School ) is a Danish community school with upper secondary school in Flensburg in the Duburg district . The approximately 540 students (as of 2017) belong to the Danish minority in Schleswig-Holstein . The school is run by the Danish School Association for Southern Schleswig . Duborg-Skole and AP Møller-Skolen in Schleswig , which opened in 2008, are the only Danish high schools south of the border.

The school was founded in 1920 as a junior high school moved in 1923 from Hjemmet in St. Mary Street to the Marienberg (Duborg Banke) , where earlier by the Danish Queen I. Margaret built Duburg was. The Duborg-Skolen is one of the city's cultural monuments today .


After it became possible again to teach in Danish after the First World War , a group of parents gathered in May 1920 with the desire to found a Danish private school in Flensburg. As early as October 15, 1920, the future Duborg-Skole was provisionally built as a secondary school in Hjemmet on Marienstraße in Flensburg ; where the Danish theater, Det lille Teater, moved in in the 1960s . It quickly became clear that the building was too small for the 108 students at the time. Therefore, on March 31, 1922, the foundation stone was laid for a larger school at the current location on the Marienberg. The building was planned and built in the homeland security style ( Bedre Byggeskik ) by the architect Andreas Dall, who had previously converted Schöneck Castle for the new Danish representation . The building was completed on April 16, 1923. In the Middle Ages, the same place was the forecourt and part of the gatehouse of the earlier Duburg (Danish: Duborg ), in which the horses and grooms were housed. The actual castle was located where the neighboring castle Duburg school and a group of rental houses are today .

Since 1949 the school has also had an upper secondary school. After the Bonn-Copenhagen declarations of 1955, the Abitur (student-exempt) of the Duborgskolen was also recognized by the German side. In 1971, a student dormitory ( Ungdomskollgegiet ) was built on Marienhölzung for students with longer journeys . When the school became too small again, it was expanded in 1979 with a modern building on the north side. Until the 2007/08 school year, the school was purely a grammar school. Today the school is a community school (Danish Fællesskole ) with a grammar school superstructure. The number of pupils has almost halved in recent years after the opening of the Danish grammar school in Schleswig.

In 2016 the Duborg-Skolen announced that the 7th – 10th Class of the school is temporarily relocated to Schulgasse due to modernization measures .

School profile

At the school, German and Danish are taught at native language level. The remaining subjects, with the exception of foreign languages , are all taught in Danish.

The Abitur prepares students for higher education in Denmark and Germany . According to German law, the school is a substitute school within the meaning of Section 58 of the Schleswig-Holstein School Act . The high school graduates are accordingly instructed and tested according to Danish criteria and the German curriculum . The highest school qualification obtained is the German general higher education entrance qualification (Abitur) in accordance with Schleswig-Holstein state law . This is recognized in Denmark just as the Federal Republic of Germany recognizes the Danish school-leaving qualifications awarded by the institutions of the German minority in Denmark. This ensures that members of the national minorities have access to the universities of the other country.

Student residence in Marienhölzungsweg

There is a Danish student dormitory in Marienhölzungsweg (Ungdomskollegiet) for students with longer journeys.


Since the mid-1980s, high school graduates have appeared in public at the end of their school years by wearing the Danish white / burgundy-colored student hats when they walk together from the Danish Consulate General over the Heiligengeistgang and the Große Straße to the Neptune Fountain on Nordermarkt and shout “Vi er students!” or “We are students!” after their successful examination. The sip from the bottle is followed by a solemn "Neptune baptism" in the fountain or in the nearby fjord.
