  • The Karl-Marx-Hof is a monumental building of the municipality. Almost cool. If you are travelling with the D coaches go a few stops it. You can go but also with the U4 to Heiligenstadt and go a few steps to the Karl-Marx-Hof.

  • The Karl Marx courtyard was built in the 20s of the last century and was a social achievement at that time. Here apartments were provided by the municipality of Vienna, which were intended for the then working-class and regarding infrastructure brought a number of amenities which were otherwise unaffordable. One of them is the so-called "launderette", allowing the residents to take a shower, to wash clothes in community laundry rooms and thus bringing amenities that were otherwise was almost unthinkable for workers. The laundry room is currently configured for exhibitions, can be visited only at restricted times. The Karl Marx Hof itself was built by a pupil of the famous Otto Wagner and is architecturally very interesting, it represents but a 'own city' in the original use. He could be closed with gates, housed shops, so he worked also as a "Castle". What also 1934 defacto was used during the fighting in February, when the efforts of the Government have been fighting. With more than 1km in length, the Karl Marx is probably more than imposing courtyard. If you want to know more about the background of this plant anyway, a guided tour is recommended.

  • The Karl-Marx-Hof is representative of the many social achievements in Vienna since 1918 with a break from 1934 - 1945 Vienna has been assessed not free so many times in a row as "most liveable city in the world", are a great aspect for this the many social achievements of the city. Unfortunately, these are so self-evident that they know not to pay tribute to the achievements of many residents.

  • the spirit of Red Vienna, superb
  • One of the most famous "Gemeindebauten" (city tenements). "Karl-Marx-Hof was well known during the February Uprising (German: Februaraufstand) of the 1934 Austrian Civil War (German: Österreichischer Bürgerkrieg). Those insurgents engaged in the revolt barricaded themselves inside the building and were forced to surrender after the Austrian army, the police, and the Austrofascist paramilitary Heimwehr bombarded the site regardless of the unarmed dwellers, mainly worker families, with light artillery.[1] During the Anschluss, Karl-Marx-Hof was renamed Heiligenstädter Hof, but took its original name back in 1945"(Wikipedia)
  • If you're interested in the so called "Red Vienna" here the time of the 1920s and 1930s can be seen and learned.
  • A really interesting piece of history of architecture.
  • Interesting spot I Vienna.
