Oldehove leaning tower

During the construction of "De Oldehove" church and tower in Leeuwarden around 1529, the tower began to sag and the project was stopped. At the end of the 16th century the then derelict church was demolished, but the tower remains until today, even though it is said to lean more than the tower of Pisa in Italy!
The Oldehove is listed as a state monument.

  1. Hopefully, it will still take another 500 years. But quite a crooked it is.
