About the project
This interactive city guide highlights the fascinating sites in the life of Karl Marx in order to make these more visible and easier to understand.
MARX•GUIDE is dedicated to the son of the oldest city in Germany and sheds light on Marx’s life and activities across Trier. Users can guide themselves through the city on a journey of discovery and track down places of interest which played an important role in Karl Marx’s life with the help of their smart phone. Audio-guides and historical pictures will give you an impression of Trier life in the 19th Century.
How it started
It all came about as a result of cooperation between the Hochschule Trier, the Karl Marx 2018 – Exhibition society, Trier Tourism and Marketing Ltd and the Society for the Delivery of the Anniversary Programme of Karl Marx Year in Trier.
