Located in the Montreal Olympic Park, the Montreal Tower is at a 45 degree angle and is 165 meters tall. That’s over 500 feet, making it the tallest inclined tower in the world! In just two minutes, ride to the top in a one-of-a-kind glass-encased funicular for breathtaking views. It’s the only cable car in the world that operates on a curve!
Once at the top, the Tower Observatory offers 360 degree panoramic views of the Olympic Park and the city of Montreal. On a clear day you can see almost 50 miles! See the incredible and unique architecture of the Stadium, the Biodome, and the Esplanade in the Olympic Park.
The Montreal Tower is the architectural symbol of Montreal, welcoming over 250,000 visitors each year. The stadium and tower were designed by French architect, Roger Taillibert, who based the design on plant and animal forms and structures. The stadium and tower were projected to be finished before the start of the 1976 Olympic Games, but they both remained unfinished until 1987.
