Overview

The secondary school within the walls of this building looks back upon a long tradition: The city´s first humanist grammar school was founded in 1529 by the reformer Johannes Butenhagen, whose Protestant educational and religious theory were adopted by the city council and the people of Hamburg in the same year. A distinguished and traditional school, the alumni list of this school boasts of nobel prize winners, distinguished scientists, writers, poets etc.The current building was erected at the beginning of the 20th century (1912-14) by architect Fritz Schuhmacher. The three-part brick foundations and arcade entrance are typical features of his work. A tour of this school is almost a history lesson in itself.
