    In the 16th and 17th centuries the gate was repeatedly badly damaged. Around 1800 the facility was converted into a prison. Renovations took place between 1911 and 1914 and 1925.

    The Aachener Tor was built at the beginning of the 14th century in connection with the development and fortification of Bergheim. It protected the long-distance trade route Cologne - Aachen.

    With its central two-storey rectangular building and three-quarter-round towers at the outer corners, the Aachener Tor is one of the most powerful city gates in the Rhineland.
