We were trying to find the entrance to the Monchsberg lift when we stumbled on the Sigmundstor. Quite impressive engineering fete and quite a good photo of an old town landmark. Just beyond the gate is St. Blaze Church and the famous horse well (Pferdesschemme).

I just passed it slowly with my car Well tunnel as tunnel :o) Impresive that it was build in mid of 18th century. And ofcourse is decorated. I dont think you will spend there a lot of time.
