Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-fifth as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral
In other words, 37.210 meters is 0.2140 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 4.670 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 174 m 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-fifth as tall as The Space Needle
In other words, 37.210 meters is 0.2020 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 4.950 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 184 m 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 six times as tall as a Giraffe
In other words, the height of a Giraffe is 0.20 times 37.210 meters.
(Giraffa camelopardalis) (Adult, average)

In other words, 37.210 meters is 0.1640 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 6.10 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 227 m 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-tenth as long as The QE2
In other words, 37.210 meters is 0.1270 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 7.870 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
The QE2 has a total length of 294 m. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9,600,000,000 meters, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about one-tenth as tall as The Eiffel Tower
In other words, 37.210 meters is 0.1150 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 8.70 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 324 m 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 m or less.
It's about nine times as long as a Beetle (Volkswagen)
In other words, 37.210 meters is 9.1220 times the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen), and the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen) is 0.10960 times that amount.
(1964 model) (a.k.a. Volkswagen 1200, a.k.a. Käfer)
A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle measures 4.079 m. As the longest continuously-produced automobile design — in production for 75 years between 1938 and 2003 — the Beetle was voted the most fourth-most influential car of the twentieth century by the Global Automotive Elections Foundation.
