Well, I knew you are not the smartest.
But insisting on denying grade 6 knowledge is truly rare.

I guess you're personal attacks are crying for a brig, nicht wahr ?

I assume that this forum has a distorted view/definition of skyline which is not matched by the majority of people, the avarage guy. The reason is obvious, this is a skyscraperpage. Most users inevitably seem to believe that skyscrapers, and I mean only skyscraper buildings define a skyline.
in Europe there are 3 higher structures than the Berlin television tower

It would be so easy to decide what skyline is the best if only the highest structure were taken into consideration.
A good skyline can not consist only of 1 tall tower. It needs many other ones.

@IF: Don´t try, you won't find a factual error.

The Berlin skyline among all European major city skylines has the highest peak.
The skyline / major highrise conglomerate is also situated in the center of the city (unlike in Paris).
It is diverse and has multiple levels of height, the color scheme tends to be diverse as well.

I call it the best skyline in Europe.

True. You'll find two factual errors (in point 1 and 2).

That isn't even your statement my criticism refers to.

What's even your point there? That you can use Google with random words. Congratulations, well done mate!

even cosmos google-counting is utterly wrong...

"Skyline Berlin" -> 38.600
vs.
"Skyline Frankfurt" -> 111.000

and

"Berlin Skyline" -> 108.000
vs.
"Frankfurt Skyline" -> 201.000

but why am i arguing with such an obvious troll..

The funny thing is: I hit the spot with the Berlin skyline claim.

The German users here are so shocked that none of them tackled any
core arguments. Thats a good sign. Why ? Because it is painful to learn
that Berlin has a very prominent skyline.

Very painful in fact for all those who suddenly
realize that this is nothing else than the truth.

For all others of course who already knew it,
I guess its a real joy to see the magnificient images of the Berlin silhouette ...

I'm loving it.

They are not upset because of Berlin's fame or skyline, Cosmo. It's your posting behaviour they have a problem with.

What core arguments? That one tower makes a skyline?
