I happened to find Rot an der Rot, the Monastery and its gate when researching Swabia, Germany. We entered this small Village through a Town Gate, which had open,large wooden gates with an Eagle painted on them, but this wasn't the Gate. This Gate is known as the "Lower Gate."

On my walk, I found the other Gate, which is known as the "Upper Gate" and is the one in my photo. It would have to be, the most beautiful Town Gate I have ever seen!
It is only painted on the Village side, the other side is plain, and here again, I could see the wooden Gates, with the Eagle painted on them.

Stunning!
