    The Berkelpoort is a water gate and part of the Zutphen city wall over the small river Berkel. The gate was built in the 14th century to connect the two settlements on both sides of the Berkel.

    The Berkel ruin is 700 years old and one of the most striking historical buildings in Zutphen, which used to be part of the city wall. With a guided tour you can climb the wall and enjoy the view of the Berkel from above. Tickets for a visit are available from the tourist office on the Houtmarkt.

    The Berkelpoort is a water gate and part of the Zutphen city wall and located on the eastern edge of the city center, across the small river Berkel. The gate was built in the 14th century to connect the two settlements on both sides of the Berkel.

    Originally there were two water gates that together with the city wall formed a fortress around the city. The other water gate, which was located at Berkelpoortstraat, was demolished in 1774.

    In 1888 the Berkelpoort was restored by architect P.J.H. Cuypers. Cuypers preserved the ruinous state of the gate by covering the top of the walls with a layer of cement. A new, more reconstructive restoration followed in 1951.
