City gates were traditionally built to provide a point of controlled access to and departure from a walled city for people, vehicles, goods and animals.
Many cities would close their gates after a certain curfew each night, for example a bigger one like Prague or a smaller one like Flensburg, in the north of Germany.
With increased stability and freedom, many walled cities removed such fortifications as city gates, although many still survive; albeit for historic interest rather than security.
