  St. Alban city gate
by german_eagle

The St. Alban city gate was built in the 13th century. In the 14th century it was enlarged. The wooden ceiling is remained.

In 1871 the gate was restored and at the Eastern side a house for the guards was added. In 1976 it was again restored.

There is a beautiful small park in front of the city gate, the trees were set in the middle of the 19th century.
