t the beginning, the Totengässlein was also called Todgasse (path of death). This name had already existed before the great earthquake of 1356 because the dead used to be carried from the area of St. Peter’s parish to the former cemetery on the square of St. Peter’s Church.
Today one can find traditional handcraft shops in the Totengässlein.
