The Montreal Tower / La Tour de Montreal, Montreal

3.6
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.

  • As soon as the elevators rose to the top of the tower, I could observe the whole city! This is a great destination spot for taking photos or for just simply enjoying the view of Montréal! - 3/13/19
  • Definitely a place to visit when you tour Montreal. You get to see the entire city. I would recommend standing in the front of the elevators to the top to get the amazing view of the stadium underneath.
