After the Great Fire of Hamburg of 1842, the senator in office had to make important long-term decisions on the reconstruction of the areas affected by the fire. Thanks to his high status, illustrious guests from around the world flocked to him, including rulers and dignitaries of the first order, poets, and thinkers. The manor house served as a generously representative space. Jenisch followed the prior owner's advice, and the highest point in the southern part of Voght Manor Park with the best view of the Elbe was chosen for the construction. Jenisch Park is the largest part of Voght Park still mostly preserved to this day.
