The Dijkpoort is a 14th-century citygate in the Dutch City Hattem. In 1908, the gate was restored and rebuilt to its current state by architect Pierre Cuypers. A wall walk and corner turrets were added which were recognizable by the different colors of the stones.

Outside of the gate there was formerly a newer front gate with two round towers. A compound wall is still standing, where are the cannon and Arquebus embrasures are located.
