Hells Gate is part of the original city wall, built after Henry I, Duke of Brabant, gave permission for its construction in April 1229. It is the only remaining city gate in Maastricht and the oldest city gate in the Netherlands. For about two centuries, the gate was part of the city's actual fortifications. It lost this function when the Nieuwstad (New City), the area south of the gate, was surrounded by a wall in the second half of the 15th century. It was then used for various purposes: a meeting place for the cloth fullers or walkers, an armoury, a powder storehouse and a residence. Expert staff are on hand to provide information and answer questions. Site not accessible for wheelchairs. Opening hours (provisional):  - Easter Sunday to autumn half-term inclusive: every afternoon 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM Entrance fee: Voluntary contribution
