The water gate is the last surviving of formerly five city gates of the Wismar city fortifications. You wonder why a base plate with Nosferatu is embedded here? In Wismar one of the first horror movies in film history was shot. The first Dracula film entitled "Nosferatu" was recorded in 1921, among others, at the water gate.

1869/70 demolished the city wall along with the other gates. The water gate and the old water tower are the last testimonies of this wall. 1921 was the water gate next to the courtyard of the Holy Spirit Church, St. Mary's Church tower and the Old Harbor filming location for the film Nosferatu.
