After the "Beer Hall Putsch" in the Bürgerbräukeller on 8 November 1923, the Nazis and Hitler marched heavily armed to the government area. At the Feldherrnhalle the Nazis were stopped by the Bavarian police and shootings breaked out. 16 Nazis and four policemen lost their lives.
After Hitler came to power in 1933, a large memorial for the killed Nazis was erected. After the war it was removed. Now there is a plaque in the pavement which commemorates the four killed policemen.
A bit further away is a similar plaque in the pavement.
