The Highland Gate in Gdańsk

The Highland Gate in Gdańsk starts the so-called ‘Royal Route’, which takes you along Długa Street and the Długi Targ Street up to the Green Gate. Its builder, Hans Kramer of Saxony, erected it as a link in the chain of modern fortifications put up to frame the western city borders between 1574-1576. Initially made of brick, it gained its present shape in 1588 thanks to a transformation carried out by Willem van den Blocke, of Flemish origin.
