Top 10 Most Famous Towers

The Top Ten

1 Eiffel Tower

Just beautiful - magnificent architecture; although surpriingly heavy feeling to stand underneath all that architecture

La tour Eiffel (Eiffel Tower)is my favorite.I have seen it before in real life and it is extremely satisfying.

Who doesn't know the Eiffel Tower?

Undoubtedly #1

2 Empire State Building

Walked in, didn't like feeling of all that weight above you. Lacks the grace of European towers, like the US itself

It's a tower building and not exactly a tower

Everybody knows about this tower.

3 Big Ben

I love how someone has put a bell on this list.

Big Ben is the BELL
The tower is called the ELIZABETH TOWER

Not very big but definitely very famous.

I'm not a british person, but hell!...i love this tower!

Been there too!

4 Tower of Pisa

Also known as the leaning tower in Pisa, Italy. It's a freestanding bell tower of the cathedral of the city of Pisa (the lean is the result of an unstable foundation). Height: 56 m

Ooooh my towers leaning mamma mia

Wow!

Surprisingly few residents of my country know that we also have our own little leaning tower, a fire tower in Szécsény.

5 Burj Khalifa

I heard they added a play ground on the roof where you jump off the top then the next one does. Whoever dives the fastest before die wins

Immensely famous but I am not sure it is technically a tower in the proper sense generally I think a tower is a building where most of the height is not inhabitable like the CN tower or the Tokyo tower.

My idea was to talk about inhabitable towers but people added buildings with offices and apartments, biblical towers, fictional towers, etc. What can I do? So I added item descriptions to them, too, and even images to some of them, since they were already on the list. - Metal_Treasure

I have been on this one. It's very high.

@Metal Treasure thank you for your explanation.

6 CN Tower

It's in Toronto, Canada. Height: 553 m. The CN Tower has gained several world height records. It held the record for the World's tallest tower for 34 years, from 1975 to 2009, when it was overtaken by the Canton Tower in China.
It's home to the world's highest and largest revolving restaurant (360 Restaurant) - at 351 metres (1,152 ft) that completes a full rotation once every 72 minutes. This Tower also holds the record for the World's highest glass floor paneled elevator, the World Record for the longest metal staircase, and more.

The main reason it’s famous is becuase it is in Canada. Lucky Canadians have a reason to brag. They don’t have trump

I truly believe it's famous because it held the record for the World's tallest tower for 34 years, from 1975 to 2009. And not because it is in Canada. - Metal_Treasure

7 Space Needle

It's in Seattle, US. Height: 184 m

8 Tokyo Skytree

It's in Tokyo, Japan. Height: 634 m (completed in 2012). It's different than the Tokyo Tower completed in the 1950s.

9 Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel is a tower that was in the Bible, although it was actually real. The tower was abandoned although archaeologists claim to have found what might be the remains of the tower.

Looks like an ancient tower. Wonder how old it is.

Before Jesus, I believe it is around even before the flood is said to have destroyed the sinners. So probably one of the first projects of it's kind, same time span as when Jericho was built. - Stalin

Should be higher. Do you guys have any idea how famous this is?
