Obviously the Pyramids. If you let kids show a picture of it, they'll say: Look, it are the Pyramids.
Everybody recognize them

Really ? but then these tourists all died while the french still lived in mud huts, so that doesn't make the pyramids more famous now, does it ?

Should be one of these: Pyramids, Eiffel Tower, and Great Wall. Difficult one, just try to think what landmark would be more famous among the millions of people in Asia and Africa. If all school children in China learn about the Great Wall, that alone makes that landmark very famous among many people, though our 'famous'-definition should be about world-wide rated famousness.
