We consider intersections in eleven dimensions involving Kaluza-Klein monopoles and Brinkmann waves. Besides these purely gravitational configurations we also construct solutions to the equations of motion that involve additional M2and M5-branes. The maximal number of independent objects in these intersections is nine, and such maximal configurations, when reduced to two dimensions, give rise to a zero-brane solution with dilaton coupling a = −4/9.
