Now a hotel, the Moller Villa was built in 1936 by a foreign shipping magnate living in Shanghai. The building is one of the most interesting mansions in the whole city due to its quirky, castle-like towers and coloured tiling. Visitors can enter via the gate on Shaanxi South Road and admire the garden and the back of the house,then explore the renovated rooms and staircases inside. The building now contains a hotel, and staff do not seem to mind visitors. The hotel is a major destination for weddings in Shanghai.
