Observation Deck
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.
