The Dillmann-Gymnasium in Stuttgart was founded in 1867 by the school reformer Christian von Dillmann (1829-1899). Today it is a linguistic and scientific high school . From grade five, the school runs a Latin course (with a linguistic and scientific profile) and an English course (language sequence: bilingual English, French, and optionally Spanish, otherwise NWT).
A “realistic department” under the direction of Christian Heinrich Dillmann is set up in the Stuttgart grammar school and is housed in the former polytechnic at 12 Königsstraße. In 1871 the former department became an independent secondary school. Soon afterwards, in 1878–1881, the school building at Lindenstrasse 30 was built.
After the old school building was completely bombed in World War II , construction of today's school buildings began in the forest road from 1956 to 1958. The school consists of an administration building and a class building, which are connected by two striking glass bridges. The school was built by the architects Peter Salzbrenner and Karl Hans Neumann and is considered the best example of the school building architecture of the 1950s in Stuttgart. The building has been awarded the Paul Bonatz Prize and is a listed building.
Extension of the auditorium
With the support of a specially established foundation, the alumni association financed the construction of an extension to the auditorium with all-day care, which was inaugurated on March 17, 2007 after about a year of construction. The building is located underground between the two previous school buildings. The extension is one of the first privately financed buildings in Germany at a state school. In a large-scale fundraising campaign, in which students, teachers, alumni and parents were involved, the 3.3 million euros required for the construction were collected. Money was collected from inside and outside the school in campaigns such as a bicycle market or art sale. The auditorium is used as an event room, cafeteria and lounge.
The cafeteria in the basement of the administration building, which is looked after by parents and students, was given a new kitchen in the auditorium with new and modern kitchen appliances, as well as an electronic, cashless payment system with a chip card.
Despite the underground location, the auditorium is bright during daylight. The wall design was designed by the students themselves in a competition. In a competition, the students themselves decided which design should be on the wall. You can see different colored soap bubbles on a blue background.
School and club swimming pool Stuttgart-West
On September 21, 2007, the Stuttgart-West school and club swimming pool was inaugurated by Stuttgart's Lord Mayor Wolfgang Schuster . It's next to the sports field. In the course of the construction this had to be reduced. After the swimming pool in the Diakonie-Klinikum Stuttgart was closed in the school year 2000/2001 , a new school swimming pool had to be built in the city center. Construction of the swimming pool on the Dillmann Gymnasium site began in January 2005.
On the opposite side of the street is one of the oldest high schools in Stuttgart, the Friedrich-Eugens-Gymnasium .
