Dausenau: Dausenau missed world regrets record entry for tower

Be the leaning tower has an inclination of 5.22 degrees, according to the Association Historisches Dausenau. The Guinness book lists a steeple in the East Frisian Suurhusen with a slightly lower inclination of 5.19 degrees as the world record for unintentionally inclined towers. "This is very annoying," says the Dausenauer mayor Michelle Wittler (SPD). The Association Historisches Dausenau explained to the leaning tower: "Because it is supposedly a ruin, it has not been recorded in the Guinness book of world records." In fact, the distinctive, 16-Meter-high building in the 1300's-souls town of Dausenau is not accessible, and also has a ceiling plate without any through. According to the Association Historisches Dausenau of the Leaning tower of Pisa is less inclined than the copy on the Lahn, acting, however slate, because he was higher.

The Leaning tower of Dausenau is part of the medieval city wall. Its location on a slope led partly on rock, partly on stony clay soil in early to have a slight tilt. This increased, as in addition, the city wall and the Support was part cancelled, the groundwater with the navigability of the river Lahn rose and before the construction of a bypass road for more trucks drove past.

mayor Wittler, an Irish girl, has, according to its own information, only a few days ago the results of a geotechnical investigation. Accordingly, the Leaning tower had to be stabilised, "so that he remains in all of the ages are". This will probably require a six-digit sum to waste - "a big thing for a small community".
