The Montreal Tower / La Tour de Montreal, Montreal

#100 of 452 in Things to do in Montreal
Head to the top of the tallest inclined tower in the world, The Montreal Tower / La Tour de Montreal. At 165 m (541 ft), the tower leans over Montreal's Olympic stadium at a dramatic 45-degree angle. Opened in 1976, both the stadium and tower represent the work of French architect Roger Taillibert. Take a glass funicular ride to the top of the tower, the only such ride that climbs a curved structure. Along the way, enjoy a panoramic view of the city skyline, which only gets better from the observatory at the top. Add The Montreal Tower / La Tour de Montreal to your Montreal travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Montreal day trip planner.

Where to stay in Montreal

If beautiful architecture and views over the water appeal, stay in the historic neighborhood of Vieux Montreal (Old Montreal), where you'll be a stone's throw from the best attractions in the city. If modern convenience is more important to you, look for accommodations in the downtown neighborhood of Centre-Ville, or head a bit farther out to the artsy district of Plateau Mont-Royal. LGBTI visitors might want to consider staying in The Village, Montreal's famously progressive hub of gay and lesbian culture.
