The Dreikönigenpförtchen is a hidden 'immunity portal' that leads to the St. Maria im Kapitol. Immunity portals are the gates to monasteries and convents that enjoyed autonomy. Above the main arch of the Gothic gateway is a 14th century sculpture of the Adoration of the Magi, as the bones of St Magi were brought into the city by Frederick I Barbarossa of Milan through this portal.
