    The Osthofentor is a city gate of the Hanseatic city of Soest am Hellweg, newly built in the period from 1594 to 1603. The sandstone building is the last surviving of formerly eight main and two side gates.In 1534, the gate was a place of execution for ten Anabaptists, probably missionaries of the Münster Baptist Kingdom.In 1965 it was pictured in the stamp series Deutsche Bauwerke from twelve centuries of the Deutsche Bundespost.In Osthofentor 1978 to 1982, the Museum of City History was established. It has a collection of 25,000 medieval crossbow bolts. This is the old treasure of the city of Soest, which until the beginning of the 19th century in the tower of St. Patrokli, which was not the church, but the city was also used as an armory was housed.The Osthofentor is also found en miniture next to other outstanding German monuments in mini-Europe in Brussels.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osthofentor
