Norre Port (the North Gate)

In the olden days, Halmstad had four town gates and today only the North Gate remains. Once this narrow passage was a through route to one of our largest main roads. The Norre Port was completed in 1601 under the Danish king Christian IV. These days the gate leads you to the cozy Norre katts park.
