Tips

    The gate dates from the first quarter of the 14th century. After the heavy siege by the Flemings in 1304, the defense was drastically improved. This included, among other things, the construction of this gate. The name of the builder of this gate is unknown. Unfortunately, this can no longer be traced, because in 1811 the archival documents were sold as waste paper by the mayor at the time.
    Like the Zuidhavenpoort, the Nobelpoort is also high. It gave defenders the opportunity to spy on and harass their attackers from above. It is still mainly the time of the bow and arrow. When the cannons were able to develop their destructive effect, such high gates were no longer erected.
