During our Munich city walking tour, our guide pointed out this “memorial” in the Promenadenplatz. Although city officials have never officially sanctioned it, the shrine has become a tourist site with flowers, balloons, and national flags left by fans from around the world. The monument...More

Came upon this whilst going for a walk in central Munich. This is opposite the hotel Michael Jackson stayed in town. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it ,but have a look if near.

Just a monumental full of Michael Jackson pictures. Nothing special. I wouldn't loose one minute visiting it.

This is a fun spot to see while walking around Munich. Really speaks to the unique quirks that the city has to offer. If you're in the neighborhood you should walk by and see it in person.
