Salem 2020

100 Jahre Zukunft

On 3 April 2020 Schule Schloss Salem will celebrate its 100th anniversary under the motto “100 Years Future”.

Prince Max of Baden, the reform educator Kurt Hahn and the philologist Dr. Karl Reinhardt founded Schule Schloss Salem on 14 April 1920. Nearly 100 years later we look forward to commemorating this important milestone with a celebration on Friday, 3 April 2020. Baden-Württemberg’s minister president, Winfried Kretschmann, will give a ceremonial address in the early evening. Throughout the day there will be many opportunities for personal talks and social gatherings. Please reserve the date and let us celebrate this fine day together. 

Throughout the centennial year 2020 there will be many further events and activities to celebrate the school’s 100 years of existence. We will keep you informed through postings on our website.

We look forward to your attendance!
 

 

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.

Donations can be made either by downloading the donations form or directly online:
