The Karl Marx Monument

The Karl Marx Monument

The 7.1m-high bronze bust of the philosopher Karl Marx is the most famous landmark of the city of Chemnitz. The sculpture on a mount lined with Ukrainian granite was created in 1971 by the Russian sculptor Lew Kerbel and is situated in the city centre on Brückenstrasse near the crossing to the Strasse der Nationen.

On the wall of the building located behind the Karl Marx Monument the writing "workers of the world unite!" can be seen from the communist manifest in the four languages of German, English, French and Russian.
