Oberlinden 25, Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, 79098
The Swabian Gate or Schwabentor is located at the fork of Oberlinden and Greiffeneggring. The iconic tower dates back to 1200s and has been renovated several times over the years, but the most significant change was when its size was almost doubled, in 1902, based on the designs of Carl Schäfer. Featuring an onion dome and painter Fritz Geiges' rendition of St. George, the dragon-slaying patron saint of Freiburg im Breisgau, the exteriors of the Schwabentor are quite impressive. Also found here is a private museum called Zinnfigurenklause. It narrates the history of the region with the help of tin figurines that number over 9,000 artifacts.
