Karl Marx House, Trier

3.4
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. Plan my day in Trier using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Karl Marx was born 200 years ago in this house (1818) to an upper middle-class family. But it seems that he was a very good observer and thinker. He decided not to follow the secure way that his famil...  more »

  • ABSURD. Who would imagine that in 2017, celebrating Russian Revolution 100 years, Karl Marx House would be closed? Unbeliavable, but it was. Congrats to the museum directors who needs SEVEN MONTHS to change the exposition and therefore close the museum... (which seems to be small, why 7 months?) I came to Trier only to visit it. I can't express my disappointment. Info about the closure was available in their website only in German because everybody speaks German, right? I just found info in English when I arrived to the museum.
  • Only description of his life. We can find all of this every where on the web. The fact of beeing in his house does not change anything. It only a house with text on the wall
  • I wanted to learn more of this man so I thought what better than to go to his museum. It had a few pictures of him and a hologram of him downstairs. The largest part of this museum is actually the souvenir store. The store actually has really pieces and books but I didnt buy anything cause I don't know who he is still. The house itself is well maintained and spacious.
  • Nice exposition about the enormous impact of this native son of Trier. Not too many references to the daily life in the Marx household, though. The early days of schoolboy Karl do not really come to life. Don't forget to enjoy the beautiful garden.
  • A great museum. Everything about Marx and his ideas are well documented there. Nice place to visit in Trier.
