Alberichgasse (Fünfhaus) was named on September 17, 1912 after the dwarf Alberich, a figure of Germanic mythology who appears in the Nibelungenlied, among other things. The first component Alb- means “Elb” or “Nature Spirit”. The second component -rich comes from the Germanic -rik and means “ruler, prince, king”. Alberich guards the Nibelungenhort and can make it invisible by means of a stealth. Siegfried is able to steal his cap of invisibility and thus comes to the treasure of the Nibelungs. The alley is part of the Nibelungenviertel.
