Ulm Minster, the tallest church building in the world.
Ulm Minster, the tallest church building in the world.

This list of tallest church buildings ranks church buildings by height. From the Middle Ages until the advent of the skyscraper, Christian church buildings were often the world's tallest buildings. From 1311, when the spire of Lincoln Cathedral surpassed the height of the Great Pyramid of Giza, until the Washington Monument was completed in 1884, a succession of church buildings held this title.

The tallest church building in the world is the Ulm Minster (161.5 m), the main Lutheran congregation in Ulm, Germany. The tallest Catholic, as well as the tallest domed church building, is the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace (158 m) in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast. The tallest church building with two steeples as well as the tallest cathedral is Cologne Cathedral (157.4 m) in Cologne, Germany. The tallest Eastern Orthodox, as well as the tallest domed cathedral, will be People's Salvation Cathedral (now 120 m; 127 m when completed) in Bucharest, Romania. [1] The tallest brickwork church building is St Martin's Church (130.6 m) in Landshut, Germany, while the tallest brickwork church building with two steeples is St Mary's Church (125 m) in Lübeck, Germany. The tallest wooden church building is Săpânța-Peri Monastery church (78 m) in Săpânța, Romania. The tallest church building in the Americas is the Cathedral of Maringá (124 m) in Maringá, Brasil. If completed, the Sagrada Família in Barcelona, Spain, will be the tallest church building in the world, at 172.5 metres (566 ft).

The city with the most church buildings surpassing 100 metres (330 feet) is Hamburg (five of the 28 tallest churches), second is Lübeck (four of the 55 tallest churches), in the Americas it is New York City (two). The city with the most church buildings taller than 75 metres (246 feet) is Berlin (15), second are Hamburg, Vienna, Munich and Dresden (eight each), and in the Americas it is New York City (four).

Note: The church buildings are ordered based on their tallest recorded height in history. Those listed in italics and marked with H (for "historical") are church buildings no longer in existence (suffix D) or no longer as tall as their previous maximum height (suffix >100 if height today > 100 metres, suffix >75 if height today > 75 metres and suffix <75 if height today below 75 metres). These church buildings may appear a second time on the list if their current shorter height is still greater than 75 metres (3,000 inches).
