Karl Marx Haus is a very well presented testament to the great philosopher and revolutionary thinker. As a visitor I admire the Germans’ willingness to look unflinchingly at their past history unlike the British, the Americans and the French

The house where Karl Marx was born is now a carefully researched and curated museum that’s engaging enough to bring your kids. Some amazing timelines, a video book; very interesting use of technology. Interesting throughout. Highest possible recommendation!

The house on Bruckenstrasse where Marx was born had been forgotten about for many years, until in the early 20th century it was turned into a museum. At the same time, the exterior was redesigned to reflect the way in which the architect imagined a...More
