Koln may have the "most skyscrapers in Germany outside Frankfurt", but they are too randomly scattered to have any meaningful impact. This city really needs to assert itself. 7

So you think that Cologne should surround the midieval Cathedral with higrises and skyscrapers?!
We are in EUROPE! Cologne is awesome just the way it is! It doesn't nedd skyscrapers, neither a highrise impact or any other of those things to impress. It's geographical situation and silhouette are great.

Actually, Cologne is a butt-ugly city. Rebuilding after WW2 couldn't be much worse... And without the amazing Cathedral, there would be nothing of interest regarding a skyline.

4/10

Cologne is amazing. It is quite bustling for it's size, a highrise packed skyline would worsen the situation of WWII-rebuilding. But Cologne has other things to offer. You can not deny it, or you don't know it too well.
Or would you prefer to see the Cathedral surrounded by the highrises? Modern architecture okay. But no concurrence in height just near the cathedral.
And it is funny that people from overseas always think that all cities have to be filled with highrises and form a skyline. We have a completely different model of urbanization. At least we have 4 of the 12 best cities to live in in the world. I think a skyline doesn't improve the quality of life!

I am German and I'm pretty often in Cologne too, so I know what I'm talking about. I never said that the city centre should be packed with highrises. On the contrary, I love historic cityscapes...but Cologne just has one ugly post war blog after the other. The city is really ugly...but right, it's popular too. And the Kölner are the most outgoing and overall happy people I could think of in Germany. Still, the city is pure post war ugliness with just one sparkling highlight, the Kölner Dom.

I know that you are German! You live in Trier, where I often spent some days when I was a child. An aunt of mine lived in Schweich.

Köln ist wunderbar! The historic core must be preserved (or what survived from WWII) and i think that the height is OK and any skyscraper would destroy that area. But i think that Köln could have a new area for a new CBD or something like this with more skyscrapers constituing a new area in the city.

wonderful photographs, the ratings 9 / 10 that, according to the definition of skyline (an outline (as of buildings or a mountain range) against the background of the sky), I think this very clearly defined the silhouette of the city and very recognizable .

I think these threads, many people confuse a skyline and think they have to have skyscrepers.

as only a personal opinion

Who said anything about clustering skyscrapers in the center of the city? Other european capitals have found ways of blending old and new creatively without overbearing talls ruining the Altstadt the way Frankfurt did, or with districts where talls are built appealingly like Moscow or Amsterdam. Koln just has little cohesiveness to its skyline and most of those scattered talls are dreadful.

This model is used to make the cityscape look open and free. If you collect them just in clusters, the city looks american and it is not desireable for an old city where Romans have settled for a long time!
You do not have such historic backgrounds in the US so you can do whatever you want with your cities...
And Cologne is not growing that fast that there would be a need to verticalize it! IMO some of the highrise buildings could be knocked down to improve the cityscape!
