  • Well worth going to see, we took the number 3 tram and it stops just outside the gate. The view as showed in the photo is great awesome  more »
  • rises in thin air in the middle of a big square and at the bottom of one of the avenues from the Center. This does not detract however to his Majesty

  • Spalentor door is a 3 doors remaining fortifications of Basel. 3 doors of the ancient outer wall, we have seen that (St. Alban and St. Johann to see). I love these 2 round towers protecting this tower square to the multicolored tiles found too much at home, in Alsace. Magnificent.

  • The most beautiful of the three remaining city gates of the outer city fortification of 14th century.
  • The Spalen Gate is one of the remaining gates of Basels ancient city wall. The wall used to go all around the city in medieval times. Part of it is still standing near St. Alban gate.
  • A big gate, that is very old and historic. Lovely piece of architecture.
  • Nice tower within a lovely housing area and next to the botanical garden. During Xmas season all streets are beautifully decorated. Worth a stroll
  • Good one. You can spend 10 mins looking at it.
