  • The tower itself has nothing special, what is interesting is that it is in the oldest part of the city, in a neighborhood, St. Alban, very nice with very well-kept cottages resembling medieval. Also another reason is that it is next to the Museum of paper.

  • A great place to visit. It is very peaceful, and you can relax and just enjoy yourself. I'd really recommend this place. 
  • St. Alban-Tor is one of the three old towers which still exists as a relic from Basel's former fætsnings plant. The other two are St.-Johanns-Tor and Spalentor. Alban-Tor was first mentioned in 1230. The tower was destroyed in the great earthquake which struck Basel in 1256, but 20 years after the tower was rebuilt. In 1869 there were plans to demolish the Tower, but luckily put Basel Kunstverein an end to the plans and the tower was restored in the years instead of after. The tower was again restored in 1976-1977 and belongs today among the historical monuments in Switzerland. Visit to the Tower, you have to go for a walk in St. Alban-Vorstadt, which is a very charming neighbourhood with fun, old houses. You can also view St. Alban-Kirche.
