The Koornmarktspoort is city gate in Kampen, Overijssel, the Netherlands. It was originally part of the city wall and is the oldest of the Kampen city gates.

History[edit]

The central block and gate are fourteenth century and the two towers facing the river are probably from a later date.[1] The rear of the building opens on the Koornmarkt (wheat market square), and the front faces the river IJssel.
