History

The first strolling quay was created during the days of Jean George Haffner, about the year 1827. It was used by passengers of fishing boats who would hire them for a cruise along the beach. This quay would be disassembled for winter. In consequence of consecutive extensions in 1886, 1896 and 1910, the quay became more and more permanent. It was about 315m long and about as wide as at present.

The last extension started in 1927. The traingular head and the southern arm, that was intended from 1880 were constructed. At the entrance, a wide panoramic platform was created and glass-illuminated gallerry in front of it to delimit the Treatment Square from the beach.
