Evangelical Seminaries of Maulbronn and Blaubeuren

The Evangelical Seminaries of Maulbronn and Blaubeuren (Evangelische Seminare Maulbronn und Blaubeuren) in Baden-Württemberg, Germany together form a combined "Gymnasium" (high school) and Protestant boarding school in the Württemberg tradition.

Grades 9 and 10 are taught in the former Maulbronn Abbey. Grades 11 through 13 are taught in Blaubeuren, partly in cooperation with the Gymnasium Blaubeuren (Blaubeuren High School).

The seminary was founded as a monastic Protestant school in 1556 by Christoph von Württemberg, in the premises of monasteries suppressed in the Reformation.


The alumni of the seminary have included:
* Johannes Kepler
* Friedrich Hölderlin
* Hermann Kurz
* Eduard Zeller
