  • One of the 3 remaining entrance gates, and the most decorative one, supposedly as through this gate the French goods to the market passed. Well worth the walk to it (or a tramride).  more »
  • The Spalentor is one of the city gates, which have secured access to the old town of Basel. The beautiful gate is beautifully restored and you should visit necessarily within a tour of the old town, especially since it has close access to the Botanical Garden of the University of Basel.

  • The Spalentor is one of those historic places in Basel which you have to see. Recently refurbished it shines in new splendour.

  • Although this building is not in the real "centre" of the old town it is definitely worth the walk.
  • Beautiful gate leading right into Basel's Old Town.
  • I really like the decorated roof of this historic building
  • Was restored during 2015. Now it shines again.
  • A historic landmark located close to the local university and its botanical gardens. Should definitely be on your bucket list if you want to get a full impression of Basle.
