Cellebroederspoort


The Cellebroederspoort is one of three medieval gates that have been preserved - reminders of the days centuries ago when Kampen was the most important city of the Netherlands, thanks to its role in the international Hanseatic League. It is a rectangular city gate, flanked by two heavy round towers, originally from 1465, rebuilt in 1617 in Renaissance style. This is the view from the city park, the old city center lies behind the gate.
