Kraanpoort

Kraanpoort

The Kraanpoort. This used to be the most beautiful gate in the city, built in 1538-1540 by Master Herman van Herengrave. In 1611, the building was demolished and only an ordinary gate arch in the city wall remained. The end is reached in 1837: because of collapses the gate has to be broken down. The name of the gate refers to the large city crane which used to stand in front of the gate.
