Lonely Planet review
Opposite the U4 Heiligenstadt U-Bahn station, architecture fans and neo-socialists will be excited to find one of the crowning achievements of Red Vienna : the Karl-Marx-Hof. Stretching for almost 1km along Heiligenstädter Strasse, this colossal housing project in pale pink and yellow was built by Karl Ehn, a student of Otto Wagner, between 1927 and 1930. It originally contained some 1600 flats, plus community facilities and inner courtyards. In 1934 it was the centre of the Social Democratic resistance during the civil war, and has since been restored.
