Long monument

The Karl-Marx Alle (former named Stalinallee until 1961) is the longest monument of Germany. Socialist Realism, also known as "stalinistischer Zuckerbäckerstil", frames the 90 meter wide boulevard, which was built in 1952-1960. Landmark of this impressive avenue with many up to 300 m long and up to nine-storey apartment blocks are the two towers at Frankfurter Tor, which were inspired by the towers of the Dome on the Gendarmenmarkt. The buildings (build out of massive brickwork), were constructed of remains from bombed houses.
