  • Gevangenenpoort Lier is situated in the historical centre of Lier. Visiting historical centres during city trips is something for fans, rather you love it or you don't.

  • Nice to have seen it. Good for a picture and moving on.
  • Built in 1375 . Today it is the only remaining historic gateway to the city, which was part of the city walls at the time. From the 16th century to the beginning of the 20th century it served as a prison and hence its name. Now the adjacent Hotel ZIMMERHOF uses this space as a party room.
