8.5/10

I had a magnificent view on a clear day from the top of the cathedral. I admit that the city isn't exceptionally tall, but the density is awesome, as is the architecture.

Cologne is a very nice city, I've been there many times and certainly will be there again soon, but despite its massive cathedral with its great soaring towers and the fact I love Gaffel Kölsch the skyline doesn't deserve more than 5/10...

Magnificent cathedral. And that' about it really. And those odd 60's looking buildings along the river look hideous. 4/10

Nice skyline... but according to the metropolitan area ... underdevelopped...
My top 5 in this metro area :
Düsseldorf (Diversity + night skyline)
Essen (Density)
Dortmund (Quite Modern)
Köln (Bridge Cathedral & Towers)

I think we need a topic for this incredible metro area anyway...

Here you see the comparison:

I dont like it that much, maybe its because I see it everyday. Its just huge, poor glance and very windy around it. The underground of it is more interesting. If you visit cologne, dont climb it, go to the other riverside and up to the "LVR tower", so you can make a good photo of the cathedral and the city. ;-)

The new crane houses really suck! Now they are modern, but in 10 years they will look clumsy. And the destroy our beautiful architecture in the Rheinauhafen. They should have build more emotional designs like in Düsseldorfs Mediahafen.
