The fortress Schwalm gate - one of the two former gates of the Brüggen Fortress - reached the Dutch-Spanish territory as soon as the former border river Schwalm had been crossed in half. From the Schwalm you can still see the size of the former fortress gate at the border of the gate. In the Schwalmpforte were also the customs station and the Rentei. In 1770 the Rentei got its present form.
