The white shopping arcades by the Alster lake - The Alsterarkaden and the houses associated with the arcades were built between 1844 and 1846 after Hamburg's Great Fire in 1842. A placard in the arcade hallway explains that the architect and city planner Alexis de Chateauneuf (1799-1853) played a major role in the design of the Alsterarkaden. Born in Hamburg as the son of a French immigrant, he is well known for his architectural designs in his home city as well as in London and Oslo.
