The origins of historicism lie both in Romanticism, in which national consciousness and interest for the Middle Ages was awakened, and also in classicism, in which one used elements from the Antique. The rapidly expanding industrialization in the 19th century resulted in a boom in house building. Wiesbaden is a thoroughly 19th century city and the most important urban monument to Historicism in Germany. The Adolfsallee was planned in 1870 and is without doubt the most splendid example of those Historism streets in our cities.
