Hunters’ Gate Potsdam

The Jägertor, or Hunters’ Gate, was built in 1733 in the course of the second extension to the city, when the Soldier-King Frederick William I had Potsdam converted into a garrison town. It formed part of the city wall, which was used not as a fortification but as a way of preventing desertion among soldiers and the smuggling of contraband. In 1869 the city wall was pulled down, and since then the Jägertor has been freestanding. Today it is part of a promenade newly laid out for the 2001 National Horticultural Show along the path followed by the old city wall...
