About Karl-marx-monument, Chemnitz

Situated off the Bruckenstrabe street, Karl Marx monument is a 7.10m-tall stylized head of Karl Marx. Together, along with the base, the statue stands tall at 13 metres. Right behind the statue, the wall reads "Workers of the world, unite!" (from the Communist Manifesto) and this phrase is written in four languages: German, English, French and Russian. The city of Chemnitz was renamed as Karl-Marx-Stadt on May 10, 1953. Designed by a Soviet sculptor Lev Kerbel, this monument was erected by the East-German government to honour Karl Marx. This statue was inaugurated 9 October 1971 in front of a strong crowd of 250,000 people and has since then been an important landmark of the city of Chemnitz. The Karl-Marx-Monument is also the most photographed sculpture in Chemnitz. Open 24 hours a day, visit this monument any time of the day.

  • Impressive, but nothing special. Did you know: Chemnitz was named Karl-Marx-Stadt, though Mr. Marx was never there?

  • Zombie from the past with interesting ambience. Only the near surrounding is neither friendly nor interesting.

  • It's a huge statue. A nice piece of art.

  • One of the most photographed sculpture in Chemnitz. A landmark.

  • A great monument to one of Germany's greatest sons and among the greatest teachers who ever lived and inspired the hearts and minds of millions who aspired for a better life.
