History and Development
Where recovery and leisure time are the focus today, Hamburg’s independence was once defended. Here were the ramparts, which were created between 1616 and 1625 by Johan van Valckenburgh as a fastening ring around the then city center. When the ramparts became militarily meaningless in Europe at the end of the 18th century, the Bremen art gardener Isaak Hermann Altmann was commissioned to remodel the complex in the English style. From then on the ramparts served as a rest for the citizens and enjoyed great popularity.
