St. Albans gate is average at best. Far better to go to the opposite side of the city and look at Spalentor (city gate).

Dating back to the14th century, it is one of the three preserved City Gates of Basel. The elegant building stands in a beautiful and peaceful Park. What an awesome scenery. Though not as famous as the Spalentor, this medieval Gate still deserves a visit.

St Albans Tor is situated in a quiet part of Basel not too far from the Rhine. Lovely spot for a picnic and nice place for some photography. Definitely a must see attraction in the outskirts of Basel city.

Sitting on top of St. Alban's Tor, this gate is not quite as impressive as the Spalentor Gate, but still a nice example. In a quiet park, a short walk (past a part of the city wall) up from the Papermaking Museum.

I walked through the city, and discovered the old St. Alban's Gate. It is a beautiful structure, and is most impressive. It's a must see!

We took the tram out to the gate as a starting point to explore this area. It is what it is, a stopping point on your walk! We then walked down the steps to the river but unfortunately it was a Monday and all the...More

Part of the history of the town so we visited it out of curiosity. Nothing special. We spent and average of ten minutes there for the sake of seeing it alone and simply because we had time on our hands.

One of the last things to visit during a delightful stroll through the St Alban-Tal Quartier, Basel's "mini Venice". The park through the gateway is fairly underwhelming but has some nice vistas through to the Rhine.
