The Gymnasium Eppendorf is a grammar school in Hamburg, Germany,[1] established in 1904.


The school was established in 1904 as a school for boys, Realschule in Eppendorf, in new buildings erected on the corner of Hegestraße and Hegestieg. Seven years later, it was renamed Oberrealschule Eppendorf, and in 1938 it was renamed Oberschule für Jungen in Eppendorf, and in 1957 Gymnasium für Jungen in Eppendorf. In 1969, it had female teaching staff for the first time, and in 1971 it turned coeducational and was given its current name.[2]

From 1973 to 1974, John Dunston was an English language assistant at the school.[3]

In 2000, the organisation Hegemalige e.V. was founded for former students and teaching staff of the school.[2]
