That gate , Dutch "Poort", is at the border of Haarlem city centre. You can walk / bicycle under it. It a real and historic building, great for some pictures or selfies :-)

Beautiful old gate, reminding of Haarlem's rich past and struggles with enemy armies like the spanish.

Next to the cathedral and the windmill - this is the symbol of this city. Something you need to see definitely.

Interesting to see but doesn't seem to serve a purpose. There is water on one side which could originally have been part of a canal
