  • Along the port city walk you'll pass when you do. And nice piece of history that you should not pass up.

  • Beautiful medieval gate and old city entrance, the only one still remaining in Netherlands. Very well preserved remainings of Roman and medieval times in western Europe. 
  • City wall from the 13th century built on the river Jeker remains, at its eastern end is "the gates of hell (Helpoort)". In the middle ages that attended this gate on a pump to the patient rooms to isolate patients with pandemic plague or the origin of the name. It is because it was a gate exactly, between this world and the other world. Said large-scale outbreak of plague in medieval Europe for centuries, killed the number 10 million. Well know how pleased people often see the plague monument, monument in many parts of Europe, but mourn the victims of the plague and finally ended.

  • Interesting tourist destination. Nice to have someone local explain this entire area.
  • Mooi stukje grasveld/park er omheen. Goeie uitleg
  • Ok
  • Nice rest of city walls and towers.
  • Old city gate. You can be equally in the Tower poking around where a tiny museum.
