Oostpoort

Part of the remaining city defences, the Oostpoort stands proudly as a reminder of the city former military glory during earlier centuries.

Constructed in the 1400’s, this gatehouse was once on of the main entrance points into Delft.

While currently serving as a private residence, you can still admire the fantastic architecture of this building with its two spiral towers and circular turrets.

Accessible by a bridge, the surrounding landscape is simply divine – Canals sit on either side of the gatehouse and it stands out as a beautiful photographic opportunity.
