Somehow all looks a bit like his last resting place, but he only stayed here for a rest. He did more than once. Sometimes the fate has mercy. This is the translation of the inscription:
Karl Marx Memorial Site
In 1837, Karl Marx visited this place.
We can learn, how important it is to spend some time for a rest. And how many rests that all takes.
Mr. Marx was not only a serious worker and enjoyed not only studies. Perhaps here he slept in the whispering shadows of the trees, recovering from one of his beer tours with his fellow thinkers. Of course this site was more peaceful and romantically in those days. Today, this place is a fair penalty for him. There would have been less trouble in the world, the German reunion would have come earlier, when he had been able to express his good thoughts a bit clearer. Therefore we can congratulate the designer of this place. Comrade, at least this project did not fail!
Lets hope that this place will not be the victim of vandalism, property speculation or household difficulties of the Berlin Senate. Here we can pay our tribute not only to the death of a famous person. We pay tribute to his life and raise our bottles solemnly. Don't forget the glass workers who made the bottles and the brewers of course. Cheers Charly!
