|From mid 1660th this was the main entry to the city of Fredericia, left of the gate is the old gate house.|
Originally it was made by wood but 1747 it was falling apart and 1748 a new one was build by bricks. On the top you see the monogram of King Frederik V.
To the left of the Gate House is the bigger Danmarks Port and to the north is another gate into Fredericia, the Norre Port.
Fredericia is the only city in Denmark with old gates.
Many cities, like Copenhagen, have the name in location name: Norreport and Vesterport
