St. Moritz Leaning Tower

Learn about the intriguing history and create fun photos around this exceptional leaning structure whose incline exceeds its counterpart in Pisa, Italy.

The St. Moritz Leaning Tower is a remarkable 16th-century structure that has survived the rest of its church. The building is 108 feet (33 meters) tall and stands at a pronounced incline, making it an iconic attraction. Gaze up at this historic landmark and inspect the various carvings and other features.

Capture photos of the inclining tower and trick the camera’s lens with a snap of your hands appearing to hold it up. Stand on the vantage point around the base and enjoy the panoramic vista of the town and the lake. Enjoy a picnic with your family on the green lawn in the surrounding park. Among the standout features is the painted red-and-yellow clock face.

Read the various information plaques, which shed light on the site’s rich history. The tower was initially attached to the 13th-century Church of St. Mauritius, which was damaged in 1893. The tower’s bell was removed around the same time, since it was top-heavy. Despite several restorations and restructures, it still has a 5.5-degree tilt, which is as large, if not larger, as that of the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy.

Arrive in winter to see the area covered in snow. View the tower at night, when the structure and its surrounding buildings are illuminated. Make your way through the adjacent cemetery that dates back many centuries. The tower forms part of a postcard-pretty scene, with the region’s mountains as a dramatic backdrop.

Visit the park and courtyard surrounding the tower for free. The interior of the landmark is not open to the public.

The St. Moritz Leaning Tower is just across from the Kulm Hotel in the northeastern part of St. Moritz. It is a short walk north from the spectacular Lake St. Moritz. Ride the train to St. Moritz Railway Station and stroll north for a few minutes to reach the tower.
