The Promenadeplatz, an elongated rectangular square, was an address for nobility in the Kreuzviertel. There are five monuments on the square today: the statue of Lorenz-Westenrieder, the Orlando di Lasso statue, the monument to Elector Max Emanuel, the monument to Christoph Willibald Gluck and the monument to Maximilian Joseph Count von Montgelas. The original monument to Wigulaus von Kreittmayr was moved to Maximiliansplatz and was not rebuilt there after the Second World War. A curiosity is the di-Lasso statue, now Michael Jackson's memorial thanks to his fans with posters, flowers and paraphernalia reminiscent of Jackson, who often stayed several at nearby Hotel Bayerischer Hof.
