Munich’s Homegrown MJ Memorial

Someone in Munich is a big Michael Jackson fan. They have established a huge memorial to the singer on site of a memorial statue to Orlande de Lassus (a Renaissance era, Flemish composer-songwriter to Bavarian Duke Albrecht V).

Check it out:

There may not be the quantity of fresh flowers there were a few years back, but the MJ Memorial is very well maintained.

The memorial is across from the swanky Bayerischer Hof, a five-star hotel which Mr. Jackson stayed in when visiting Munich. No, this is not the hotel where he dangled his kid out the balcony- that’s the famous Hotel Adlon in Berlin, not far from the Brandenburg Gate.

Someone misses Michael, as do we all on occasion, but the majority of us just build shrines in our mind.
