City gate

A city gate is a gate that leads into the city. It is normally located in a citywall.

City gates are known mainly from the Middle ages when larger towns often were surrounded by a wall with several gates. The gates made it possible to control the trade and the visitors to and from the town. The gates and walls also worked as fortification.

City gates can still be found in a few Danish cities such as Faaborg and Stege.
