This list of tallest buildings in Europe ranks skyscrapers in Europe by height. While skyscrapers remain sparser in Europe than in Asia or North America, a significant number of cities still distinguish themselves by the number of highrise buildings they host. While traditional cities hosting highrise buildings such as Moscowmarker, Parismarker, Londonmarker, Frankfurtmarker or Warsawmarker remain very active, skyscrapers in the recent years have also boomed in other cities such as Istanbulmarker, Madridmarker, Benidormmarker, Rotterdammarker, Brusselsmarker and many other cities.

Since its inauguration in 2007, the tallest skyscraper in Europe has been Moscow's 268 metre Naberezhnaya Towermarker block C. Six other taller buildings are under construction in the same city and some of them may become the tallest buildings in Europe by 2009 and later. Projects include Federation Tower complexmarker with 506 metre tall East Tower, that will be completed in 2010.

This lists ranks skyscrapers in the Europe that stand at least tall, based on standard height measurement. This includes spires and architectural details but does not include antenna masts. Existing structures are included for ranking purposes based on present height. This list includes under construction buildings that have already been topped out.

Tallest European skyscrapers by pinnacle height

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 at least tall, but it is subject to change because of simplicity of mast changes.
