About

So… I drive my bike through this gate a few times a week and I was wondering about its history.
Let me tell you more about that!
 

This gate is located next to the Mauritshuisso they called it the Mauritspoort (gate) or Grenadierspoort. This gate was built in 1634, to create a better entrance to the Plein. Back then, the Plein and the Binnenhof where separated by water, so in front of the gate was a bridge. They created the small gates on both sides of the gate later in time, they are about 160 years old.
 

In the middle of the gate you see the crest of Holland, it’s looking pretty powerful with the gold elements shining in the sun. The government is paying a lot of attention on renovating the gate, so it remains good for all the years to come.
