There is an unusual gate- Hirschberger Tor -near Wedinghausen Monastery’s entrance. It was built in the XVIII century for Hirschberg hunting lodge. At the beginning of the XIX century the castle fell into disrepair. Local authorities decided that it was easier to pull it down than to repair. However, they preserved the gate and in the 1820s decided to transfer it to Arnsberg. A local newspaper even conducted a readership survey about where they should be. In the end it was decided to demolish one wing of the former monastery and erect the gate in its place. Since then, Hirschberger Tor is considered a symbolic entrance into the huge forest surrounding Arnsberg.
