The Leverkusen academy product had been a regular in the team's lineup since the 2016-17 season when he made 29 appearances.
Internationally, Henrichs has made three appearances for his country and was part of Joachim Low's Confederations Cup-winning squad last summer.
"Benjamin Henrichs is a talented defender with solid national experience and a very high international level, and his arrival reinforces the quality of our team and I am sure he will contribute to the team's good results," Monaco chief executive Vadim Vasilyev added.
