Veerpoort

Veerpoort

The Veerpoort. A 14th century gate tower. In a bombardment in 1590, this was so heavily damaged that a part of the building had to be demolished in 1604. In 1609, the building was reconstructed as a simple, relatively tall tower with a saddle roof. After a reconstruction in 1824, the gate was nothing more than an arch in the wall; this was demolished in 1864. In the picture, you can see a part of the gate on the right.
