Long Description:
Gutgesellentor is located east of the cathedral hill in the center of Breisach, from where a steep and narrow alley leads up to the top.

It is one of the remaining gates of the medieval city walls. The early history is not well documented, the first time it was mentioned that we know of, was in 1319.

In 1415 Antipope John XXXIII was captured at this gate, after he had escaped from the Council of Constance.

Today the upper floor of the gate tower houses the club room of a local carnival association and a small carnival museum.
