Old guard.

Known as the Munttoren (Money Tower), this old medieval gate was built in the 15th century. The original defensive system was made up of two towers and a guard house, but was destroyed in 1618. Only the Western tower was completely rebuilt as an octagonal bell tower with a steeple.

Dutch currency was minted here during the 17th century, explaining the name of the monument, which was restored between 1885 and 1887 after the guard house was destroyed.
