    The Schwabentor was built in the middle of the 13th century as a city gate within the fortification to protect the citizens.

    Today it houses the Zinnfigurenklause, a museum in which historical events are recreated with pewter figures.

    It is said: after the Swabians wanted to conquer Freiburg with cross-held spears, but therefore did not come through the gate, they are back to Swabia 😂😉
