The Helene-Lange-Gymnasium is a bilingual secondary school in Hamburg. It was created in 1910 as a girls' school, and has been accessible to boys since 1969. It was the first bilingual school in Hamburg. It maintains sponsorships with schools in Dar es Salaam, Havanna, Chicago, and London.

The building which today houses the Helene-Lange-Gymnasium was built between 1908 and 1910 by the architect Albert Erbe, and officially opened on January 4, 1910.
