The Montreal Tower / La Tour de Montreal, Montreal
(2.5/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Montreal tourist route planner to schedule your visit to The Montreal Tower / La Tour de Montreal and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The tower is an interesting piece of olympic history and architecture. It provided very nice views of the city. The cost was a little high for the overall experience. 
  • You need to get on this observation tower to see and appreciate the Montreal totally different angle. Here you can see almost the most remote corners of the city. Very impressive. Be sure to climb, is worth a look.

  • Thought the view was really nice to see from the top, the rest of the are is really outdated. I thought it wasn't worth the money.
