Kilden Foundation

An inclusive haven

Imagine a place where no one has to struggle because of being different or an outsider. A place where everyone is regarded as a whole person with more opportunities than challenges. That is exactly what the Kilden Foundation is – a socio-economic enterprise based at Esrum Abbey & Møllegård. Meet those people here!

Meaningful collaboration

Can a socio-economic enterprise that develops young people and adults with special needs have a meaningful collaboration with a historic site that creates natural and cultural experiences for countless people? Absolutely! At Esrum Abbey & Møllegård, the two things are inextricably linked.

Meet us

The students and staff of the Kilden Foundation play a vital role in the work of looking after and running Esrum Abbey & Møllegård. You can meet the students and staff in the abbey garden – looking after all the plants or mowing the lawn in the apple orchard – behind the counter in The Mill Café, at one of the monthly soup kitchens, or at the various events hosted by Esrum Abbey & Møllegård.
