The One-Eyed Witch Passage is a secret tunnel that leads from Hogwarts to the cellar of Honeydukes Sweetshop in Hogsmeade. Harry Potter first learned of it from Fred and George Weasley when they gave him the Marauder's Map in 1993. The passage's entrance is hidden in a statue of Gunhilda of Gorsemoor. To gain entrance to the passage, one must give the password; Dissendium. Once the password is given, the hump on the witch's statue opens to reveal a short slide into a tunnel which leads under the school and takes about an hour on foot to get to Hogsmeade. Harry, Ron and Hermione ran past this statue in 1991 to avoid getting caught by Argus Filch.

Fred and George Weasley had used the passage to sneak supplies from Hogsmeade on many occasions. When they handed on the map to Harry, Harry used it to sneak into Hogsmeade on two occasions, until he was seen in Hogsmeade by Draco Malfoy when his Invisibility cloak slipped and he narrowly avoided expulsion.
