List of tallest buildings in the European Union

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list ranks the tallest buildings in the European Union that stand at least 100 metres (328 ft) tall, based on standard height measurement. This means that spires and other architectural details are included in the official height, but not antenna masts, as it is defined by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

Tallest buildings in the European Union.

Only habitable buildings are ranked, which excludes radio masts and towers, observation towers, cathedrals, steeples, chimneys and other tall architectural structures. Since 2011, the tallest building in the EU has been The Shard in London, United Kingdom, at 306 metres (1,004 feet).

Existing buildings[edit]

Buildings above 140 m[edit]

This list includes buildings under construction that have already been topped out. Architectural height is considered, so masts and other elements added after completion of building are not considered.

Buildings by pinnacle height[edit]

Tallest buildings by pinnacle height in the European Union, including all masts, poles, antennae, etc.

Some skyscraper enthusiasts prefer this measurement, claiming that the extensions that can or cannot be deemed "architectural" are subjective. However, many non-architectural extensions (such as radio antennas) are easily added and removed from tall buildings without significantly changing the style and design of the building, which is seen as a significant part of the value of these buildings.

The list includes all skyscrapers of at least 200 metres (656 ft) tall. However the height data is subject to fluctuations due to simple changing of mast extensions. This list includes buildings under construction that have already been topped out.
