Leaning Tower of Pisa gets trumped

When we think of leaning buildings, it’s pretty obvious where our minds go — to Italy, where the Leaning Tower of Pisa has been making photos look off-kilter for years. But the Leaning Tower of Pisa is no longer the structure with the most pronounced lean — The Guinness Book of World Records has confirmed that a 13th-century church tower in the village of Suurhusen in Germany is the tower that leans the most.

The German tower leans 5.19 degrees, whereas the tower in Pisa only leans a paltry 3.97 degrees. The German tower is still in use, and gives out guided tours in order to raise money for the building’s upkeep.
