Benedictus Arch

The Benedictus Arch forms the entrance to the cemetery and to the church and former monastery district. The upper part of the Benedictus Arch points to the historical significance of this place and to the importance of the monastery as it saw itself. The top is formed by the globe. Below it there is a reference to the visit of Leo III, who is said to have been here in 799 with Charlemagne and to have consecrated the church, which in its origins goes back to Charlemagne. In the shell is the founder of the Benedictine Order, St. Benedict, to whom the monastery was also dedicated.
