"Karl-Marx-Strasse" Top 5 Page for this destination Saarbrücken Off The Beaten Path Tip by Nemorino
Saarbrücken Off The Beaten Path: 8 reviews and 13 photos
As a former working-class city (there used to be numerous mines and factories in this area, most of which have now closed down) Saarbruecken is one of the few (West) German cities that has a street named after Karl Marx (1818-1883), the founder of scientific socialism.
Marx was born in Trier, which is maybe a hundred or so kilometers downstream from Saarbruecken, just past the place where the Saar flows into the Mosel.
As you can see if you enlarge the photo, it is not a particularly glamorous street, even though the two young ladies are doing their best to feel glamorous in their new underwear. French cigarettes are being advertised on the left, and the cigarette machine on the right is -- typically -- mounted low to the ground so that small children will not have to stand on tiptoes to become addicted.
