I think Rotterdam's skyline is much better than Milan's one and I find that generally Dutch cities (Rotterdam, Amsterdam, The Hague..) have a better skyline than Italian cities. This is my opinion obviously.

let me give you a big hug

Best looking - Moscow followed by Frankfurt and Paris

Best quality - Moscow followed by London, Paris and Madrid

Most number of over 110 above - Moscow, Pairs and Istanbul ( in no particular order )

Supertalls - Moscow, London

Most iconic - Paris and London ( Moscow runner up )

Underrated - Istanbul and Rotterdam

The winner - Moscow

^ thanks for the info

You are probably the only person I know who thinks that Frankfurt doesn't have superb architecture and quality (imo the other cities mentioned don't even come close, except of London).

I did check all your links the other day. I mean no offend but some of them look like the ones in Bangkok.

I am so disappointed by quality and architecture of skyscrapers in Frankfurt.

What i was hoping from this city is not the quantity of towers which are massively built across the city like you see in Manila or Kuala Lumpur whatever

I want Frankfurt to build only very very high quality and iconic skyscrapers (designed by world's best architects) that represent not only for Germany but on behalf of the entire Euro Zone.

An economically very powerful city that manages and controls Europe's most important head quarters, banks, and other big companies, and a city that contains at least a bunch of supertalls like International Commerce Centre, Two Financial Centres in Hong Kong, Bank of America Tower and One World Trade Centre in New York, an icon like The Gherkin and The Shard in London etc that kinda of iconic glass-towers.

At the moment the only towers i like are Dutchesche Twins Towers because of their quality of cladding. But, hold on a second, Paris already has tons of that kind of quality towers although they may not be too iconic on the global scale.

I am very excited about new European Headquarter tower in Frankfurt, which is defo my type but then again Frankfurt fails to deliver the height, tower is just way too short and wouldn't even be visible if it was built in big cities like New York, London, Moscow for eg.

It would be great if they increase the height a bit more, at least 280m will make it perfect although if it's not a supertall.

your problem is, you only consider glass cladded buildings as "quality". i dont know where that comes from. many of the most beautiful sykscrapers around the world are stone cladded. opposed to glass, stone ages in style and is persistent.

Yes, glas claddings = high quality, and 220m with antenna = not visible in LONDON! LOL!

You're such a freak! Or just a troll....
