Meet your guide outside the Karl Marx-Hof building in central Vienna to begin your architecture walking tour. Follow your guide around the gigantic Art Deco housing estate and learn how it was built by urban planner Karl Ehn in the 1930s as you admire its innovative design and creative use of space.

Along the way, hear more about the Red Vienna era, and discover how the Socialist government built housing estates such as the Karl Marx-Hof to tackle public housing needs in the city after the bombing of WWI. See how the estates were designed to be miniature cities, with spaces for shops, libraries, theaters, kindergartens, medical clinics, laundromats, and political clubs.

After exploring Karl Marx Hof, take a short metro ride to another one of the estates, the Reumannhof. Discover the political vision behind the housing project, and learn more about the pitfalls of Vienna’s socialist experiment and how it contributed both to the country’s economic problems and the Nazi takeover of Austria in 1938.
