Of the four city gates which originally gained access to Kempen, only the “Cow gate” remains. The name is derived from when it led to a cattle drive to pasture land north of the town. The original gate was built in 1350 with the current one being rebuilt between 1896 and 1898 when a third floor and Gothic towers added.
