Historic Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Opened in 1947, Karl Marx House not only tells about the life and writings of the man, but also presents a history of communism and socialism. Explore the place where Karl Marx was born in 1818 and spent his formative years, and see some of his earliest communist writings. Though only a few original objects remain, a series of informative panels paint a good picture of his life and his influence. A free audio tour is also available in multiple languages.
