This elegant street has an interesting history. It was commissioned to be built by the city (1827-30) on the model of Unter den Linden (Under the Lime Trees) in Berlin, but only one of its original houses still stands today, namely No. 37. It is mentioned as being the home of Hans Castorp's grandfather in Thomas Mann's novel The Magic Mountain. No. 29 has a paneled room which is still its original state from around the turn of the century.
