  • A small museum located on the second level. The entrance is on the right behind the gate house. Entrance fees applies €3 each. The museum is small with limited artefacts on display. But nonetheless interesting. The steps up the museum is narrow and do be cautious when ascending the steps.
  • As the Oldest City Gate in the Country, and served as a Southeastern Entrance to the medieval town Masstricht, Helpoort was built in the early 13th Century as part of the Fortification. Due to it had been used as a prison, the Portal acquired the name of "Hell's Gate". Well preserved, Helpoort is now a Museum. If you visit Maastricht, a Medieval Religious Centre, and also a Garrison Town, Helpoort should be on your sightseeing list indeed. A few photos as my recommendation.
