Elvis Monument In Friedberg

August 19, 2009 | Other

A newt monument was revealed last weekend in Friedberg. The Elvis sculpture measures 5 meters in height and is 3.75 meters wide. The monument is placed in the middle of the roundabout near the entrance of the Capri Club in the Ray Barracks. F

From now on, the first thing you'll see if you enter the city, is a large Jailhouse Rock silhouette of Elvis. At this time, the monument serves also as a billboard for the expo in the Capri Club that ends on October 11. The monument itself will stay when the expo closes.

Very different style monument – makes a nice change! Any German/English speakers tell us what the inscription says please? Thanks!

My German isn't too good, but I'm sure the sign reads "Elvis opened his bowels here" - hence the silhouette. But don't quote me on that.
