Show sight on map Book Ticket*

Hell's Gate, once the Spray Gun Gate, the Takahashi Gate, all the gates on the windlass, the Gunpowder Tower Gate or the two towers, are the front gates in the Dutch urban grid. The port, part of the first medieval wall, sits at the pier at the southern end of the St Bernardus Channel, opposite the Plague House. The port dates back to the second quarter of the 13th century and is therefore the oldest surviving city gate in Holland.

2. Poort Waerachtig

Show sight on map

The gate is a mesh gate located in the dock area, between Wharf Street and Cinder Peak Wharf. Originally called the port, it soon became a vague gate in the mouth of the people, and later became a real gate. The gate has three passages: the left and right one for pedestrians, and the middle one for wider and higher traffic. It lies between two parts in the late Middle Ages and between five titles. 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.
