Today Giessen's citizens nickname is Schlammbeiser. In the old days before there was a sewage system, a Schlammbeiser was the guy who emptied the toilet buckets with a long stick (Schlamp Eisen). The buckets were sitting in the alleys and people dumped their business from their toilet holes from above. The Schlammbeiser would then lift the buckets away with the long stick and empty them.
Directions: near Marktplatz
