The Kunrau Eco School

The “Kunrau Ecology School” has been located since the mid-1990s in the Kunrau Chateau, the manor house built in Kunrau in the last third of the 18th century by Theodor Hermann Rimpau, the lord of the manor. In 2005, the Association took over the management of the institution from the district Altmarkkreis Salzwedel.

The Ecology School is a so-called extra-curricular learning centre based on the decree of the Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs on ecology schools in the state of Saxony-Anhalt as of 01 August 2012, last amended on 09 November 2016. Teaching events are offered on different topics from the areas of nature, ecology and the environment.

Because of the situation with the pandemic (SARS-CoV-2), no events will be offered until further notice. News about the recommencement of operations will be issued here.

The Kunrau Eco School is located on the northern edge of the Drömling nature park. At this place of extracurricular learning in Kunrau Castle, we implement projects with ecological, economic and social educational goals for all schools in Saxony-Anhalt.

Network of Eco Schools in Saxony-Anhalt

Our network of eco schools in Saxony-Anhalt, which is part of the LISA (State Institute for Teacher Education and School Development) in Halle, offers all school pupils in our state interdisciplinary, problem-based and activity-oriented work and encourages their creative ability.
At a total of six locations, which are situated at landscape-specific locations in Saxony-Anhalt, educational activities and projects can be implemented in line with the syllabus for a sustainable development, for all types of schools. Over the course of time, the eco schools have progressed from being purely environmental education centres according to the educational mandate of the education act, and are now network centres of education for sustainable development.

In the Kunrau Eco School the following topics are taught:

  • Water and Hydrology
  • Soil Science and Forestry
  • History, Flora and Fauna of the Drömling Nature Park
  • Ecology and Living Habits of Indigenous Faunal Species
  • Renewable Raw Materials and Energy of the Future
