100 Jahre Zukunft
Prince Max von Baden, the reform pedagogue Kurt Hahn and the philologist Dr. Karl Reinhardt opened Schule Schloss Salem on 14 April 1920. We are celebrating this foundation almost 100 years later in the form of various events throughout the anniversary year. An overview of all events can be found at the bottom of this page.
Ceremony on 3 April 2020 rescheduled
The big anniversary celebration of Schule Schloss Salem on 3 April 2020 has unfortunately to be rescheduled due to the current dynamic development of coronavirus infection rates. The planned alternative date is the weekend of the Whitsun meeting of the Altsalem Association next year.
Why are we shifting the ceremony?
- The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) recommends to avoid large events if possible.
- The health of the students entrusted to us, but also of the staff and our guests has the highest priority.
- The upcoming Abitur and IB examinations must not be endangered by potentially infected students present.
We very much regret this decision and have not taken this step lightly. At the same time we are very happy to celebrate the 101st birthday of Schule Schloss Salem in May 2021 with you and other guests from all over the world in a fitting and carefree manner.
All other events planned for the anniversary year will take place as planned.
Countdown: In about 1 week our School will celebrate its 100 anniversary.
2013: Opening of the Salem Kolleg
On 15 September 2013 the Salem Kolleg was officially opened on Härlen. For the first 22 students, this marked the beginning of their orientation year, which is divided into trimesters and includes general studies and outdoor training, in order to make a well-founded decision for their future.
All information is available on the Salem Kolleg website
Salem activity garden
As a gift for the school’s 100th anniversary, Salem’s students have wished for a commons area for games and sports, for school and leisure activities. Plans are being made to build an “Activity Garden” on the former playground behind the newly renovated “Reithalle”, where it can also be used for teaching out-of-doors, as a green classroom.
To complete our Activity Garden we need your help!
Please support us and establish your own memorial in the form of a name plate in our new outdoors arena. In the project sketch you will find a variety of options for a donation or sponsorship.
