Candle Arch Christmas Ore Mountains - Schwibbogen

The origin of the Schwibbogen is closely tied to the German mining tradition in the Erzgebirge region (Ore Mountains), with the candles expressing the miners’ longing for light. Due to long shifts, the miners rarely saw daylight during the long winter months and so they used the Schwibbogen (candle arch) as a symbol of hope. Over time the designs changed. Modern designs are typically made of wood and depict historical or religious scenes. Other designs include landscapes, skylines, and advertisements, retaining some link to Christmas traditions. The arch in turn symbolizes the entrance of the tunnels, with miners having used a semi-circle shape of torches to guide them out of them. The number of candles varies with the size of the arc, the original design has eleven. Nowadays, many Schwibbogen do not even contain candles; instead, small electric lights illuminate the arch.
