Schiefes Haus (most crooked hotel in the world) - Ulm, Germany

World Most Crooked Hotel
A hanging key 


The most crooked hotel in the world according to the Guinness book of Records. I didn't go inside at all but from the outside it is charming. The leaning of the building is so obvious as one end actually seems to be falling into the stream! Every window is adorned with bright red flowers and it certainly is a sight worth seeking out.

The "Schiefes Haus“, or crooked house, is the most frequently photographed former town house in Ulm and dates all the way back to the year 1406. In 1443, a fundamental extension of the house in the late Gothic style was completed. The north wall of the house stood on steady gravel. The south wall, however, was founded on much less firm ground. As the foundation of this house side slowly gave way, the fundament moved with it and the house sunk into a tilted shape. To save it from eventually "swimming apart", the house was first supported by three additional pillars, before the wooden south wall was replaced by a stone wall in the mid 17th century.
