Visiting the Helpoort in Maastricht

The Helpoort (Hells Gate) used to be a prison and is the oldest still existing city gate in the Netherlands that to the day of today is home to an interesting historical collection.

During the centuries a multitude of fortifications have been added to the gate and the wall. A visit to the Jekertoren (Jeker Tower) near the Helpoort is also a recommended sight while visiting Maastricht.
