Artist's Description

Prisoner’s Gate.

On the corner of the Zimmer square one can see the “Prisoner’s gate”, which dates from 1375. This was originally a gate of the city wall. It was built in gothic style but later adapted with classicist elements. This can best be seen on the side of the gate towards the market square, where a niche harbors a polychromatic statue of Saint Rochus. Also on the other side the gate has been decorated with a statue of Saint Margaret. As from the second half of the 16th century until 1930, the gate was used as a prison, hence its name
