The 10 Tallest Churches In The World

There was once a time in human history where the Church was one of the most influential and powerful organizations in the entire world. What the leaders of the church said was law, and anyone who disobeyed felt the wrath of a faith-dealing army. There have been some changes throughout history, however, and now churches are separated from real governmental power. They are more humble now, though the mightiest of churches remain strong even today. Here are ten of the tallest churches ever.

Strasbourg Cathedral, Strasbourg, France

The Strasbourg Cathedral, Strasbourg, France, stands 466 feet tall, making it one of the tallest churches of all time. It took around two-hundred years for it to become the tallest structure in the world back in 1647. That changed in 1874, however.

St. Nicholas’ Church, Hamburg, Germany

St. Nicholas’ Church, Hamburg, Germany, stands 483 feet tall. Construction completed in 1874, where it was named the world’s tallest building of the time. That only lasted for two years, though. Sadly, the church was heavily damaged during World War 2.
