Remnants of an old castle wall have been found in the center of Eindhoven. This is probably the gateway to the so-called city castle.

It is about thirty years ago that the last excavations of the Eindhoven castle have been done. The castle was built in the fourteenth century and was destroyed during the Eighty Years' War.

"We assume that these are the remains of the gate to the castle. We are now investigating that," says archaeologist Ria Berkvens. "This excavation gives us more insight into the identity of Eindhoven. It tells a story about the history of this medieval city. "

The work is being carried out by the Berkvens team on Ten Hagestraat. The excavated castle wall can be seen at restaurant 't Zusje. The excavation work is done carefully, because there is a highway of pipes around and over the wall.

Further research will take place on Monday. The data is then collected and further investigated.

The drawing of the castle must in any case be adjusted. The entrance gate shows a different image than the entrance gate that is in the old drawings.
