List of tallest buildings in the Netherlands

This list article contains data about Dutch buildings of at least 100 metres (330 ft) high – essentially all modern, fairly recent buildings/towers, but also including two old church towers over 100m, the tallest of which (the Dom Tower of Utrecht) was completed in 1382.

The top-ten tallest buildings in the Netherlands all stand in the three biggest cities of the country (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and The Hague), with Rotterdam holding the top six tallest buildings in 2022.

After much of Roterdam was bombed and destroyed in the German invasion of the Netherlands in 1940, the people of Rotterdam chose to rebuild their city with modernistic architecture, instead of rebuilding in a more traditional style. In 1991, the Delftse Poort office towers, right by Rotterdam Central railway station, became the first Dutch skyscraper complex to breach 150 m (500 ft), and practically ended the debate whether the country had any true skyscrapers at all.

The generally infirm nature of Dutch soil types, with bedrock typically only found at considerable depth, generally makes the foundation engineering of very tall buildings quite challenging, and Delftse Poort remained the country's tallest tower until May 2009. Nevertheless, since it was built, it inspired new towers between 100m and 150m tall to be created in many Dutch cities and towns. In 2022, Rotterdam raised the bar once again by opening the 50 m (200 ft) taller Zalmhaven tower.
