The Beatles memorial consists of metal statues of the band members as well as song names of successful songs. The initial engravings held some spelling mistakes such as Drive me car, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and Can’t Buy Melove , which could not be corrected before the unveiling on September 11th, 2008. By now the incorrect plates have been exchanged and all is right with the world.

This plaza was built to commemorate Hamburg’s importance in The Beatles’ history. The draft design was by architects Dohse & Stich during a common tendering. Building the project cost about €500,000 and was split among donations, sponsors and the city of Hamburg.
