Chemnitz (from 1953 to 1990 called the Karl-Marx-City), located in Eastern Germany, is the third-largest city in the Free State of Saxony after Leipzig and Dresden. The city is famous for its art collections (Kunstsammlungen), the industrial museum that reflects its history of a flourishing industry, the Kaßberg – one of Germany’s largest populated neighbourhoods belonging to the Gründerzeit and Art Nouveau, and, not to forget, the 7.10m tall head of Karl Marx, the Karl Marx Monument. Moreover, in the next two years there will be much more to discover in Chemnitz, because the city will be the European Capital of Culture in 2025.
