Just one part of the historic mediaeval city walls. Just a bastion. Just happens to lean inwards. So what? If you're in the area worth a look, but I wouldn't suggest you put yourself out of your way to see it. Plenty more great stuff...More

When you reach the old town from the main bus parking place, you walk along the city wall and see the leaning house of the knight. It is well preserved and worth a second glance.

We stopped by on our walk to the river, each of us took a turn at trying to stand against the leaning tower without falling. It was funny to watch and we got some good pictures. It ended up being a 10 minute stop.

This place is one of the city landmarks. Through history, it was used for defense, then it was a woman's prison, a shop...It was built with beautiful red brick, but on the loamy ground, which caused the tower to lean.

Caused by unstable foundations. Interior floors are cantilevered to compensate, which makes visiting the shops an interesting experience. Legend has it that if you can't maintain your balance while standing with your heels against the tower, your morality is questionable. . . It's fun to...More

It has nothing to do with Pisa. This tower was ment to be like this. It has a history of catching 'unclean' people.

Can’t visit Toruń without stopping by the leaning tower. It is a part of the medieval defensive walls and it is on the tourist route. It will be a quick stop and a photo opportunity. I have never been inside.

This tower isn't that remarkable but it leans a bit . You can't go inside but it close to the old town and a nice enough walk past it to the river .The souvenir stalls near it charge much more than the wee shops in...More
