How can I set the location for the Lightroom library?

I am talking about the cloud based version and not Lightroom Classic! In Lightroom Classic I can define this easily.

 

I have a folder structure as shown.

Lightroom Classic (LrC) has it's folders for all the catalogs and photos.

 

I was planning to store the Lihtroom library (Lr) in the folder that is marked with the green arrow.

Unfortunately I did not find anything where I can define this, Lightroom is always saving it directly in the may Bilder / Photos folder.

Marked with the red arrow.

Is there a way to define the storage place for this file?

The Lightroom library is hardwired to be in your Pictures folder. You cannot change its location. You can change the location of copies of your images in the preferences, but the library itself must be in the default location.
