The building of Haapsalu Wiedemann Gymnasium has accommodated a school for almost 200 years - so, it is the most important school in Haapsalu from the historical aspect.
The oldest part of the schoolhouse was built at the end of the 18th century, the newest part in 1928. Some years ago the schoolhouse got an extension - a sports hall, which is the most contemporary sports facility in town. One can cheer for his favourite team there, rent the gym for sport games, use the body building centre and the sauna. Interesting to know: The school was named after the linguist Ferdinand Johann Wiedemann, who was born in Haapsalu and raised in the family of a modest public servant.
