Oostpoort, Delft: 17 reviews and 23 photos

  The bridge offers a nice walk in the green outside
by Pavlik_NL

The graceful small towers of the "Oostpoort" were only put on the height they are now in 1514. Together with a canon platform these were the last large reconstructions of the gate. When the weapons changed in 18th history, the defensive system of walls faded and the canon platform was removed again. In 1962 up to 1964 the East Gate was restored and two tiny apartments were set up inside as well as a workshop for a local artist. In 1966 the two apartments became one still small place. A removed boardwalk is back since 1988, contributing a lot to the scenic enjoy one can have from this wonderful monument.

Address: Oostpoort 1
Directions: We have now arrived on the end of a citywalk across Delft. There are various ways to return to the station or your parked car, but recommended is to go back on your footsteps and enjoy everything again.
