Hegelstrasse was the magnificent result of the first city expansion project between 1887 and 1890, modelled on the French capital Paris. Back then it bore the name Augustastrasse, after the wife of Emperor Wilhelm the First. Unlike other quarters being built at the same time, Hasselbachplatz for example, Augustastrasse was intended as a more open, flamboyant avenue. The street was wide, and dotted with lamps and pumps. The houses, which all had a small front garden, were spaced some distance apart. Height was limited to two floors. You can still appreciate the intricate facades, the richly decorated entrances and the stuccoed ceilings inside.
