One of Dusseldorf's most visible landmarks is St. Lambert's Church, a Romanesque construction which boasts a leaning tower to rival that of Pisa. While countless legends have been invented to explain this phenomenon, the most plausible was given by the sexton: the wood was still damp when the tower was erected, so when it dried it expanded and made the tower lean. Originally built in the 13th century, the church was reconstructed in 1394 and has changed little since. St. Lambert's also contains a host of religious relics including the bones of St. Apollinaris, the patron saint of Dusseldorf.
