A crooked German church steeple has knocked the leaning tower of Pisa from the Guinness book of Records as the world’s most leaning building.

The tower in the village of Suurhusen in northern Germany applied in June for the title and this week had it confirmed that it had beaten the famous landmark in Pisa.

Guinness Book of Records officials confirmed it is leaning at a 5.19 degree angle compared to the 3.97 degree of the tower of Pisa.

Personally I don’t think the 2 is comparable. It’s not just about the angle, but the height as well… the German church seems no where near the height of the leaning tower of Pisa.
