For over 60 years Stiftung Louisenlund, a full-day German secondary boarding and IB World School, has been dedicated to delivering first class education in a most pleasant environment and preparing pupils for life as caring and committed members of society. Located most idylically along the Schlei, a narrow inlet of the Baltic Sea, in Northern Schleswig-Holstein, Stiftung Louisenlund was founded by Friedrich Herzog zu Schleswig-Holstein in 1949 right after the ordeal of WWII. The boarding school was created to provide children from ages 5 to 12 the opportunity to discover themselves and to be creative.
