The first predecessor of Candle Arches was manufactured 1726 from wrought iron. The German name Schwibbogen refers to a type of arch constructed in Gothic times when an arch between two walls was called "Schwebebogen" (floating arch). The apperance of the arches goes back to a tradition of miners, who hung their burning pit lamps semi circularly on the pit entry hole before they started their last shift at Christmas. The Candle Arch expresses the longing of light by the miners who did not see very much daylight during their workdays. At first, everyday scenes from the life of the miners were the main theme. Nowadays the Holy Story and other religious topics often serve as themes. In addition the forest with its animals and the homeland can be seen.

The Arches are illuminated electrically.  Some Arches even have buildings that are illuminated.
