The Carl-von-Linde-Gymnasium Kempten (abbreviation CvL , until 1966 Humanistic Gymnasium Kempten ) is a state high school in Kempten (Allgäu) . This grammar school owes its name to the inventor of the cooling liquid Carl von Linde , who graduated from high school here in 1861 . It is a modern-language-humanistic high school. Since it was taken over by the Royal Bavarian Government in 1804, the former Latin school has shown continuity. It is one of the oldest schools in Bavaria.


After the secularization of the Princely Monastery of Kempten , the Latin school there (the Stiftsgymnasium Kempten ) was re-established as the Royal Bavarian High School in 1804. From 1863 the so-called Green Box on Fürstenstrasse in Kempten was used as a school building and is a listed building. The school moved for the last time in 1956 and is now at its current location on Haubensteigweg. After the grammar school moved out, it was used to teach secondary, secondary and elementary school students. Currently (as of 2016) the school building is home to the Albris Free School . In 1964 the student exchange with France ( Lycée Alfred Kastler in Guebwiller ) began.

In 1966 the Humanist Gymnasium Kempten was renamed the Carl-von-Linde-Gymnasium Kempten . From 1999 the institution participated in the European Gymnasium trial . On October 2nd, 2004, the grammar school celebrated its 200th anniversary. Since 2006, the grammar school has had two inner courtyards for lunchtime supervision, one quiet and one active. In 2007 a memorial plaque was inaugurated for the former pupils Alfred Kranzfelder and Franz Sperr , who were executed as resistance fighters during the National Socialist era .
