  • 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.

  • Nice tower within a lovely housing area and next to the botanical garden. During Xmas season all streets are beautifully decorated. Worth a stroll
  • It's a nice building from the outside and it attests great building skill. I would have loved to see the inside and climb it. It's a nice walk to the place, but if you can't go up, I think it's not a must do in the city.
  • Of course, it's not a big city gate. However, its design is quite beautiful and colorful.
  • So pretty and always calm, a relaxing part of the midtown area
  • Great history at this stop. It's a must see.
