Austria City Guide

„Red Vienna“ – Architectural Manifesto & Social Housing


You can see them all over the city and all of them are remarkable. „Red Vienna’s“ buildings are worth seeing even for non-fans of architecture. I’d recommend to pass this tour with the so-called suburb line S-45 – a historic light rail system planned by Otto Wagner, which leads aboveground through several districts of Vienna (optional by rented bus). Thus we see the famous Karl-Marx-Hof as well as the Professor-Jodl- Hof (XIX), the Rosa-Töpler-Hof (XVII), the Holy-Hof (XVII), the „Kongressbad“ and the „Sandleiten-Hof“ (XVI). A special tour of Vienna along, but also off the usual postcard motifs.
