The Helpoort, also known as Jekerpoort, Hoogbruggepoort, Alde Poort op den Ancker, Kruittorenpoort or De Twee Towers, is a former city gate in the Dutch city of Maastricht. The gate is part of the first medieval city wall of Maastricht and is located in the Jekerkwartier at the south end of the Sint Bernardusstraat (formerly called Helstraat), opposite the Pesthuys. The gate dates back to the second quarter of the 13th century and is therefore the oldest existing city gate in the Netherlands.
