Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral.
In other words, the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 145 times 1,200 milimeters.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 174,000 milimeters to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Space Needle.
In other words, 1,200 milimeters is 0.00652 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 153 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 184,000 milimeters tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about one-two-hundredth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge.
In other words, 1,200 milimeters is 0.00529 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 189 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 227,000 milimeters above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about one-two-hundred-fiftieth as long as The QE2.
In other words, 1,200 milimeters is 0.00408 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 245 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2) The QE2 has a total length of 294,000 milimeters. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9,600,000,000,000 milimeters, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about one-two-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Eiffel Tower.
In other words, the height of The Eiffel Tower is 270 times 1,200 milimeters.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 324,000 milimeters tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 37,000 milimeters or less.
It's about one-three-hundredth as tall as The Empire State Building.
In other words, 1,200 milimeters is 0.0031495 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 317.510 times that amount.
(New York City, New York) (to top of building)
The Empire State Building stands 381,010 milimeters to its architectural peak. The spire emerging from the top of the building was originally intended to be a mooring mast for blimps whose passengers could disembark onto a landing platform on the 102nd floor of the building.
It's about one-four-hundredth as tall as The Petronas Twin Towers.
In other words, 1,200 milimeters is 0.002655 times the height of The Petronas Twin Towers, and the height of The Petronas Twin Towers is 376.60 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Menara Berkembar Petronas, a.k.a. Petronas Towers) (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) (to spire)
Each of the Petronas Towers stands 451,900 milimeters to their spires. Holding the record as the tallest buildings in the world from 1998 to 2004, the towers continue to hold the record for the deepest foundation barrettes — up to 115,000 milimeters deep.
