It could quite possibly be the smallest square in the world.
It is certainly one filled with emotion and memory, and one that few people even in the neighbourhood (including taxi drivers) have even heard of.
As a Manchester boy, my first childhood association with Munich was linked to the tragedy of February 6, 1958, when a plane crash in the snow claimed the lives of 23 people, including 8 players from the amazing Manchester United team that has been christened the Busby Babes, after their manager Sir Matt Busby, who was also seriously injured in the crash.
They were the finest team of the generation, one sadly cut short in the wintry conditions at Munich Airport. They had not even been playing in Munich, but had stopped for refuelling after a 3-3 draw in Belgrade had seen them qualify for the European Cup semi-finals.
It was not to be, and just as the world of football mourned then, so that fateful day is forever etched in the history and psyche of the club.
In 2004, Manchester United built a lasting memorial on the spot where the accident took place, whose main piece is a football pitch with the names of those who died etched into a football pitch. It was the club's way of thanking the people of Munich for their care and support of the people of Manchester.
A new street name was formed - Manchesterplatz. It is a square between two streets, with no buildings or features at all apart from the monument. It is tucked away a short walk from the U- and S-Bahn station Trudering.
To reach it from the station, go to Birthälmerstr, then right to Kirchtruderingerstr, which turns into Emplstr. on the corner of Rappenweg. If asking for directions from locals, ask for Kirchtruderingerstr, which is much better known.
There is not much to see apart from the monument, but it is a quiet spot, offering plenty of opportunity for pause and reflection.
As you can see from the picture below, apart from the monument, there is very little of Manchesterplatz, making it a contender for the smallest square in the world.
And just 50 metres away is open grounds and the way to the Munich Riem fairgrounds, with the old airport in the background. Plenty of pause for thought when thinking back to events of 1958.
