The leaning Tower of Pisa: its competitors lean more!

The leaning tower of Pisa is a little less leaning since 2000 when attempts to straighten it up now mean it’s no longer the most crooked structure in the world.
Pisa’s tower now has some serious competition from the Schiefer Turm von Suurhusen church in Germany, which has gone into the Guinness Book of World Records.

The 13th century church inclines at 5.
07 degrees, compared to the Tower of Pisa which inclines 3.
97 degrees.
If you want to see the full report of the studies, you can go to the official site of the German church.

We’re not that interested in the competition as the church might lean more, but at least we can trust the Leaning Tower of Pisa to stand up for a while yet.
And we think it wins for the charm factor anyway – I haven’t seen the church on any trattoria walls yet.
