Lonely Planet review for Viscardigasse
The little Viscardigasse, which runs behind the Feldherrnhalle, came to be known as Drückebergergasse (Dodger's Alley) during the Third Reich. To commemorate the 16 Nazis who died during the Beer Hall Putsch, Hitler installed a guarded memorial along Residenzstrasse and required all passers-by to give the Hitler salute. The only way to 'dodge' such nonsense was by sneaking through Viscardigasse instead, a small act of civic defiance.
