About
The arch was built in 1765 in honor of the wedding of Leopold to Maria Ludovica of Tuscany. It expresses the joy of the marriange on one side, and the sadness of the death of Francis I on the other.

One arch is much like the next one to most of us, but this one at least provides some additional interest with its somewhat tragic history. One one side, this may be a triumphal arch, but on the other, it is quite the opposite. It...More

The arch marcks the limit of the old town and it reminds of the successful military enterprises of the locals in the Austrian army. It is impressive!
