1950s Housing Projects
The large urban development complex from the post-war period is a candidate for another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Together with the Hansaviertel in the west of Berlin, it represents different political systems and shows post-war housing construction of the highest standard in a variety of ways. The former Stalinallee followed a national tradition with representative facades and floor plans. The monumental avenue, an oversized axis in Soviet gingerbread style, was intended to provide the young GDR with workers’ palaces.
We’ll show you the typical housing comfort of the “Allee” through interior visits, interesting insights and special views.
