Sabre Gate (Sabelspoort), Arnhem

Sabre Gate (Sabelspoort), Arnhem (must see)

Sabre Gate (also known as Eusebius Gate) is a gate in Arnhem. The gate was first mentioned in 1357 and that is considered to be the period when it was built. The main function of this gate was initially to defend the city. Later it was also used to guard the prisoners and the insane people. Before the Second World War, the gate was surrounded by houses, but during the war years these houses were so badly damaged that after the liberation they were demolished. The tower itself was damaged but restored. The gate was restored 2 times, once in 1642 and then in 1952. After the restoration the second gate part of the Province House became the province of Gelderland.
