The Altona Amtsgericht, a lower district court that has jurisdiction over minor cival and criminal cases, was built between 1873 and 1878. The round brick building is in the style of the Berlin school associated with Schinkel. It is a vivid statement of Altona"s connection with Prussia. Between 1904 and 1907 a new, Renaissance-style, stucco building with stone details was added, associated with the time of Emperor Wilhelm II rather than with the revival architecture of Hamburg-Altona.
A plaque reminds us of the first people sentenced to death under the Third Reich in the wake of Altona's blood Sunday in 1932.
