  • This is the oldest city gate of Maastricht. You can a close step up to the first floor, where a small exhibition is about the history of Maastricht and, more specifically, on the city walls/gates. There is a volunteer who can answer questions. On the 2nd floor is a video turned on the history of Maastricht. Access is free of charge, but a voluntary contribution is appreciated.

  • Nice landmark to wander around during a nice day. Overall Maastricht is a great city to visit with many fashionable stores and wonderful restaurants and cafes. . We were pleasantly surprised.
  • Fantastic historic structure tucked away in the back streets. While impressive, there's not a lot to see or do here, just a couple of info boards and short sections of the historic town wall.
  • Didn't went into the museum but the outside was quite nice. Historically interesting
  • Fort and surrounding area are worth your time. Lush greenery around this place has calming effect. Small museum inside gives insights on Maastricht history.
  • Friendly people and simple but intricate stories
