About German Christmas Arches or Double Schwin Arches:

Those who drive through a village or city in the Erzgebirge region of Germany during wintertime will see numerous ornamental candle holders lit with small light bulbs.

 For more than 250 years the ornamental candle holder, or Schwibbogen in German, has been part of the German Christmas tradition.The first Schwibbogen was made around 172 out of forged black sheet metal and was lit by wax candles. It is said that the shape of the arch symbolizes the glowing miners lamps hung in a semi-circle at the mine entrance.
