The Leaning Tower of Barbian

Well-worth a look: The Leaning Tower of Barbian

The 38m leaning tower in the centre of Barbian is a unique sight to behold. Its foundations are embedded in stony terrain to one side and in soil to the other. Bearing witness to the Romanesque era, the church was built in the 12th-14th centuries. The octagonal Gothic spire was probably added to the tower in the 15th century, given that the parish church of Barbian was renovated in the Gothic style in 1466 from plans drawn by Hans Strobl.
The wooden sculptures in the Neo-Gothic high altar date back to the 1500’s. Further artwork of historical interest can be discovered in the churches in the neighbouring villages of Dreikirchen and Saubach with their winged altarpieces.
And this is the tilt of the tower today: At around 38m in height, the tower is slanting by over 1.5m!
