OUR HISTORY

THE FIRST PURPOSE-BUILT GYMNASIUM IN ENGLAND

German Gymnasium was designed by Edward Gruning and was England’s first purpose-built gymnasium, with funding coming solely from London’s German community. It was built in 1865 for the German Gymnastics Society (established in 1861 by Ernst Ravenstein) and hosted London’s first indoor Olympic Games, back in 1866.

" From now on we're gonna start spending a lot more time in the gymnasium, but don't worry - we haven't gone fitness crazy."
