2. Poort Waerachtig
The gate is a mesh gate located in the dock area, between Wharf Street and Cinder Peak Wharf.

The neo-Gothic port, built between 1887 and 1988, is a breakthrough in the walls of the "new town" and leads to the newly built villa park. Between 1884 and 1885, a dam was laid at the junction of the ejector and the opening of the hatch-grid line of the passage. So, on the right (east), there is a boat swing, at the bottom of the first five titles, where the goose pond is called. The dam connects the new flora in the Eastern Bowl further with the Rhine Street and downtown. She was taken to the east as a pier and was named sint pieterskade in 1903. The ejectors passed through three siphons beneath the dam, but it turned out they were unable to treat water at high levels.
