The Hufen-Oberlyzeum was a girls' gymnasium in Königsberg, Germany.

History[edit]

Elvira Szittnick founded a girls' secondary school on Bahnstraße, later Hindenburgstraße, in Mittelhufen in 1902.[1] Three years later it moved to a new building on the same street.[2] It was acquired by the Prussian state and converted into a gymnasium in 1921,[1] taking on the tradition of the former Königliche Luisenstiftung of Posen (Poznań).[3] Alfred Walsdorff was its only director. It closed in January 1945 during World War II. The building is now used as a school in Kaliningrad, Russia.[4]
