    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.

    Fort and surrounding area are worth your time. Lush greenery around this place has calming effect. Small museum inside gives insights on Maastricht history.
