Agriculture and farming

Højhuset is not just a hotel and cultural centre. We also run our own farm where we grow vegetables and flowers for use in the restaurant. On the land behind Højhuset, you will find not only fields, greenhouses and kitchen gardens but also a small herd of 40 sheep that graze around the artworks and end up on the menu in the dining hall.

The house is not self-sufficient, but we get part of the way, and the quality of our produce is top-notch, and the chefs are challenged creatively when the day's harvest is delivered to the back door of the kitchen.

The farming must support the house's sustainable strategy, which is based on the farm-to-table philosophy. This philosophy involves using good local produce and avoiding overproduction to minimize food waste and carbon footprint.

However, conversion to organic farming is a long-term process. The land will be cultivated according to organic principles until the fields are entirely and finally converted to pure organic in 2025.

Water and soap

In all double rooms in Højhuset, the water in the bathrooms is reused.

Through an ingenious purification system, the water from the shower is reused to flush the toilet. The solution is provided by a local company, Green Box, which specializes in developing lightweight bathrooms with a very low environmental impact in the production process.   

Højhuset uses skincare products from Yroli, a Danish brand with a wide range of certifications in its portfolio that can document a responsible ingredient list of organic and natural ingredients and a responsible production process in the development of products and packaging.


A socio-economic company is a private company that operates a business with the purpose, through its activities and earnings, to promote social and community benefits.

Our purpose is to run a socially beneficial house that communicates cultural interests. We do this by, among other things, organizing accessible or affordable events, letting the house be a venue for a variety of cultural activities and participating in collaborations with external cultural actors on projects that promote art and culture.

The eco-label shows how much of the food and beverages purchased at an eatery are organic. The label comes in three versions: gold (90-100%), silver (60-90%), and bronze (30-60%). Højhuset has held the silver organic label since 2022.
