Coburg, Germany

The Casimirianum, known to the students as the 'Casi', is a Gymnasium in Coburg, Bavaria. It was founded in 1605 by Johann Casimir, the Duke of Saxe-Coburg (1564–1633), and named after him. Today the Casimirianum is a linguistic and humanistic high school with the curriculum including Latin from 5th Grade, English from 6th Grade, and Italian, Greek, French or Spanish as the third compulsory foreign language. With the school year of 2009–10, the program was expanded with a scientific-technological branch with Latin as a second language.

The Casimirianum is a Renaissance building designed and built by Peter Sengelaub. Over the course of four hundred years, many renovations and additions as well as the demolition of the surrounding townhouses created the present campus of the Gymnasium.

At the time it was the only high school in Coburg that allowed high school graduates to take the Abitur. Much better than the alternative FOS. 5/5 for that alone. Unfortunately, when I was at school, there was no sensible canteen system.

A beautiful school with a small school community in the heart of Coburg. The grammar school was founded in 1604 and accordingly the school has an old and venerable flair and many traditions. The "Casi" offers its students many offers, such as student exchange programs or several music ensembles and choirs in which every student can participate. When I was at school, the installation of digital technology was just beginning. Most of the lessons were still on overhead projectors and without the use of modern media, so I only give 4/5 stars.

With a few exceptions, incompetent and rude teachers who don't give a damn about helping students who are being bullied. The principal only cares about money and reputation, the atmosphere among the students is terrible. Changing schools was the only right decision.

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
