5/10 Actually, for a small German town, this doesn't look that great. Where is it located in Germany?

It is located in the state of Thuringia in East Germany.

It is unusual that a small german city has such a tall highrise in the city-center, especially when this city is not part of a metropol region.

Thanks Digger, you explained it very good.

I love the skyline for such a little city (<=you should heed that fact also).
A nice combination of old and new towers and a nice looking city too. 10/10

And here is where it exactly is..

no skyline here.
cause making skyline need at least more than one.

To me, that lonely building doesn't suit this balanced and well-proportioned city with simmilar looking architectures.
Maybe, if another building is built, gathered and clustered near that breaker, it would be nicer

Well I voted more city wise, and for such a small city in the middle of nowhere the highrise is not bad.

However, thats not realy the point of "rate the skyline". This city should have been better presented in "Cityscapes and Skyline Photos".

I also rate the quality of a skyline not only the quantity.

And its clear that a city like Jena can not have such a skyline like New York.

For me a skyline is a line of buildings on sky/horizont...every building pricks into the sky comes into my vote. So I can not see only one tower...there are also those 2 whiter buildings and the little historical towers. My impression here is very clean and harmonious. In contrast for example to the NYC skyline..which feels a bit chaotic and seamy...gave NYC an 8 or 9 or so...don't know.

I absolutely agree with you - there aren't any small cities in Poland with such skyscrapers.

I like Jena a lot. Great location, all those trees and hills... 8/10
