Graves and Memorials and how to visit them

9 years ago

Please always show the utmost respect at any grave or memorial site.

Here is a list, that we know of, of some of the memorial and grave sites.

Munich
The original memorial in the village of Kirchtrudering. It is at the corner of Emplstraße and Karotschstraße. The memorial is crucifx decorated with flowers.

In 2004 a new memorial was unveiled at Munich Airport in a ceremony attended by Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton. It is visible from the original memorial and is on the corner of Emplstraße and Rappenweg

For those travelling by public transport: The nearest train station is 'Moosfeld' which is a U-Bahn station on the U2 line. 'Trudering' is also quiet close and is a S-Bahn station on the S4 line. If you use the automated ticket system type in M for the town/district, then type "KirchTruderinger Strasse". As you come out of the Moosfeld U-Bahn station, standing with your back to the station. Turn to the right and across the road and then Emplstraße will be directly in front of you. At the end of this road walk through a very small park to where the first memorial sits. Download Map

A plaque and clock in memory of those who died was erected at Old Trafford in 1960.
