Thanks for posting pics of Paris Leo Tyrell, but please, make sure they're topical...there's no point in posting photos that are 2 years of age...

But please Ji do me a favor, don´t confuse your opnion with the majority here. It is "your" hate and yours alone. And you know why ? Because as a proud Hamburger you are allergic to all things great in Berlin.

Isn't it strange that almost only Germans criticize the pics of Berlin ? Well this behaviour of inner German jealousy regarding all things Berlin is normality to Berlin as a city. Don´t take it to seriously.

One of the finest, most iconic, and yes,
highest skylines in Europa. Enjoy !

@ Cosmo
I do like Berlin (started some threads here about it), though there isn't much of a skyline going on. The Fernsehturm is iconic, yes (don't know if only in Germany or in rest of the world as well), but one structure doesn't make a skyline! Berlin is far too stretched out with several centres and the highrises that are there, are not very tall, compared to other cities in Europe.

I don't know why I even respond to you...


TRIER, one of the finest, most iconic, and yes,
highest skylines in Europa. Enjoy !

Cosmo, you are right about the ridicolous anti-Berlin sentiment by some jealous German users. That's as pathetic as the way you present yourself on here.

I've marked all the ficitonal parts of your supposed daily "life". At first you have to take a shower and finish off your assignments and then in the next moment you have to help your friend in the kitchen?

guys, keep in mind that we can discuss anything about the skylines but in the civil manner only. Any personal attack, insults and city bashing will not be tolerated!

Almost no-one in this thread critisized Berlin, but everyone critisized your behaviour, mate.

Actually, La Défense doesn't have a single outstanding skyscraper but only shoe boxes. However, La Grande Arche compensates that completely. It's a great example how a truely unique monument can define a skyline (unlike some TV tower or so).
