Kampen city gate

Walking on the Broederweg to the Broederpoort: one of the three remaining city gates in Kampen. Built in 1465 the structure used to be part of an earth wall that was meant to defend the city.

In 1950 the Broederpoort was set up as a city museum, which lasted until 1983 when the museum moved to another spot. Then from 1983 to 1987 it was a scientific medical centre. Nowadays the gate is being used for exhibitions and as a romantic wedding location.

  3. That is beautiful... and rare to see here. I imagine the old city of Quebec might have gate features.

  5. This is quite impressive. In 1645 it was probably even more impressive!

  6. In another age, those certainly would have been formidable walls.
