Bike Touring Highlight
Even today, the Karl-Marx-Allee is characterized by the buildings of the Stalin era. In 1963, with the construction of the Kino International, architect Josef Kaiser finally succeeded in creating the connection to the modern age in West Berlin. The building is unmistakably similar to West German buildings of the time, such as the Zoo-Palast or the Deutsche Oper. His "floating" showroom and the large panoramic front are still an eye-catcher today.
If you visit the cinema, bring some time with you. It is worthwhile to pay a visit to the Panorama Bar and enjoy the view of the Karl-Marx-Allee in peace. In addition, you should also walk around the cinema once: The windowless walls consist of a relief of the artists Waldemar Grzimek, Karl-Heinz Schamal and Hubert Schiefelbein, which shows utopian visions of the future.
