The World's Tallest Towers

A list by

A tower differs from a building in that the latter is considered to be a structure that is designed for residential, business, or manufacturing purposes. Also, an essential characteristic of a building is that it has floors. The structures listed here are principally telecommunications towers, and while they may have observation decks or restaurants, they do not have floors going all the way up.
Note: Height is to the structural top of the tower. This includes spires, but does not include television antennas, radio antennas, or flag poles.
