Grünheide (Hangelsberg) – Life in the Middle of Nature

Our Clara Grunwald Montessori campus is located in Hangelsberg – consisting of a kindergarten, primary and high school.

Hangelsberg is a district in Grünheide, close to the new Tesla factory. A beautiful place in the middle of nature. Here, daily life is more closely linked to relaxation than anywhere else. Hangelsberg is mainly known for its convenient location and for its landscape. It lies between forest and meadows which attracts many visitors. In spring, lilies of the valley bloom en-masse in Hangelsberg and are one of the largest occurrences in Europe.

Grünheide is a very sporty region as well. The SG Hangelsberg 47 e.V, a modern multi-purpose hall sports club offers a wide variety of sporting activities and a meeting point for young and old.
