The Randstad Sights

Oostpoort (East Gate)

  • Bridge/Tunnel

Fodor's Review

At the southern end of the Oosteinde canal, the fairytale twin turrets of the Oostpoort form Delft's only remaining city gate. Dating back to 1400, with the spires added in 1514, parts of the structure are now a private residence, but you can still walk over the drawbridge. It is a short walk out of the center, but the effort of getting there is more than rewarded by the view.
