The area of the Westend was used in former times for farming and there were several estates. Later it changed into a noble residential area, the development can be traced back to around about 1790. This urban district was spared the carpet bombing during World War II, so you still find impressive architecture. Important institutions such as the Westend Synagogue or the Campus Westend are located here. Famous people like Heinrich Hoffmann, Alois Alzheimer or Wilhelm Busch spent part of their lives in this residential neighbourhood.
