  • Climb the hill by tram, get off at Spalentor and admire this wonderful and well kept door while you walk down. It's just wonderful 
  • Located not far from the train station. Very majestic and with architecture. Interesting!

  • Our hotel was just outside the gate. Interesting to see. Near the university and the market. Another reason why you come to Europe.

  • 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.
