[The second Vienna Modernism]

From 1919 to 1934, political utopia became reality in Vienna. Welcome to Red Vienna! This guide will take you to the most important spots of this unique era, during which 400 buildings with 65,000 apartments were built under the banner of social housing. The visionary social housing architecture still characterizes Vienna’s cityscape today. But Red Vienna was not only about alleviating the devastating housing shortage after the First World War. The Social Democratic Workers’ Party, which had won the elections for the first time in 1919, instigated a broad reform program encompassing all areas of life, from education to leisure. Historians also speak of a second Vienna Modernism in connection with Red Vienna. ivie therefore will not only show you the most important examples of social housing buildings. With the Red Vienna Guide, you will explore the stunning “Amalienbad” swimming pool, exceptional museums and drink your coffee where revolutionary ideas were once born.
