Possibly Trier's most famous son is Karl Marx, who was born at the eponymously named Karl-Marx Haus in 1818. Surviving confiscation by the Nazi party, it became a museum after the war. The exhibitions are a bit dry, covering his political theories and charting the course of world communism across history. It's apparently a big hit with Chinese visitors to Germany.

Address: Bruckenstr. 10
Directions: Keep walking down Fleischstrasse from the Hauptmarkt and it turns into Bruckenstrasse as it heads down towards the Roman bridge. Karl Marx Haus is on your right.
