Was actually 646.3m and overtook KVLY-TV mast (Nth. Dakota, USA - 628.8m). KVLY-TV mast has since reclaimed #3 spot of tallest structures.

Depends on definition here:

Norway,

Troll Platform A (472m):





haha, some of these oil and gas installations are massive!

From Wikipedia: "The Troll A platform has an overall height of 472 metres, weighs 683,600 tons (1,2 million tons with ballast)[1] and has the distinction of being the tallest structure ever moved by mankind."

But the roof is weird, so First is disqualified and the tallest building in France is always Tour Montparnasse (built in 1972), 210m (roof)

The highest structure in France is the Millau Viaduct, the tallest bridge in the world (343m) :




And we are waiting for Phare (290m) and Hermitage Plaza (349m) ...


But no matter who has the biggest, at the end she is the one and only, 324m, visited by +250 millions people (what a slut !), standing like a queen since 1889 :
