Karl Marx Monument

Short facts

The Nischl, the most famous head and landmark of Chemnitz.

He always looks a bit grim and has seen a lot in the throughout the years. The Nischl, the city's landmark. Between 1971 and 1989 it was mainly a backdrop for socialist celebrations, but today the 40-tonne colossus is Chemnitz' most popular photo motif, a skaters' meeting place and probably the heaviest decoration for the concerts at the Kopp.
