The Peter Vischer School , named after Peter Vischer the Elder , is located in St. Johannis (Nuremberg) and includes a grammar school and a secondary school . The school has three bands, two choirs, a soccer, a table tennis and a basketball team. There is a film club, three theater groups, a school medical service , tutors for homework supervision and sponsors for the fifth grade.


On September 17, 1952, classes began at the Nuremberg Commercial School in the house at Bielingplatz 2, which was built in 1914. There was also an elementary and commercial school there. In 1956 the school moved to Sielstrasse 15. In 1965 it was renamed Peter Vischer Realschule in honor of Peter Vischer . In 1967 she returned to Bielingplatz together with a community college . Two years later, in 1969, a grammar school with a mathematics and science and a modern language branch was added to the school. From then on it was called the Peter Vischer School. In 1980 the Peter Vischer Center was founded, which was later renamed Vischer's Kulturladen . Events such as concerts or school celebrations are held there. The east and south wings were renovated from 1983 to 1986, and the west wing in 1999. In 1994 the PVS school library was officially opened as the fourth of its kind in Nuremberg. The new extension with a cafeteria , a gym and some classrooms was opened in autumn 2009. This new building enables all-day care with a meal offer.


Peter Vischer School

main building

The school building, built in the historicist style by Georg Kuch in 1913/14 , is a listed building . The polygonal stone building with a rusticated base is designed in the form of a four-storey three-wing building with a mansard hipped roof . Dormers and copper lanterns with a hooded roof structure the large roof areas. Two semicircular corner towers with a conical roof and central projection with a gable loosen up the strict character of the school building.


As part of the future education and care (IZBB) investment program, the federal government funded the expansion of the school with another two-story building that was needed for all-day activities. The rectangular new building is characterized by a dark facade with fiber cement panels and large window fronts. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the ground floor seamlessly connect the interior with the adjoining, external open spaces.
