This water gate was part of the new city wall of the expanding city.

In the evenings, the gate was closed, resulting in a build-up of water before the gate, since it is build over the river Berkel.

In the morning, the water gates were slowly opened again and the difference in water-level was used to drive several water mills.

The Whisper boat tour starts here.

Address: Rijkenhage, Zutphen
