Here you can count the number of buildings over xxx metres. http://skyscraperpage.com/diagrams/?searchID=50900898

That web is missing some Benidorm buildings height, there are 25 completed buildings over 100 metres, an another one under construction that will be 200 metres tall. Here you have them all: http://www.disseny.benidorm.org/imag...ascacielos.jpg
And Villajoyosa, the little neighbour town that shares some streets with Benidorm (like Paris and Courbevoie) has 4 buildings over 100 metres, that sums up 30 buildings over 100 metres, in a place with a population of 100,000, if London (with pop: 7,5m) had the same high-rise density than Benidorm, it would have 2250 buildings over 100 metres

I don't know sir, that static data made by SSP is only based on their diagrams and they are not reliable as well. I realised it when i counted the total number of 100m+ highrises in Hong Kong. So just ignore that list.

There's a better one from CTBUH. As you can see, Moscow, Istanbul, and Paris are the only European cities to make the Global top 50. This is the top 50 ranked by 'Combined Heights' which is the height in metres of all buildings over 100 m added together.

01. Hong Kong: 2,354---333,836

Thanks for the heads up and the correction.

and I agree with your opinion, but maybe we could say one thing is the best "skyline" (just how the city looks from far), or wich one is the most "skyscraper-city", for me, the last one are the most impressive as a skyscraper fan, because you feel there could be new tall projects anywhere in the city, and you can easily live in a tall building, as example, I'm planning to do a 2 day trip to Benidorm, I'm looking for a cheap hotel and well located, and the best option is in a 25 floor building, how many chances do you have to stay in such a tall building in other cities in Europe?
Next to zero % chance

You need spend a fortune to stay at the handful of skyscraper hotels in Europe outside Benidorm. They charge premium for the very fact that they are high rise. For example until recently the most expensive hotel in Amsterdam was the Japanese 'Hotel Okura' which coincidentally was also one of only TWO skyscrapers (20+ story buildings) in Amsterdam until recently (until the boom of the 1990s-2000s).

But in order to increase the objectivity it is good not to forget the day-pics too. That's all I'm saying.

Very nice. But for some reason, I can't help but prefer the Canary Wharf skyline.

All the buildings that have ever been the tallest in Europe are called "the first skysraper in Europe", that's because there's no limit for a building to be called skyscraper, Madrid's Telefonica building is also called like that, because it was the tallest european building until that building in Antwerp was completed (1926 to 1932 I think), and before Telefonica building there were other "first european skyscrapers"

That building in Antwerp is wildly accepted as the first skyscraper in Europe. The building in Madrid is no skyscraper to me. It is a big building wit a small tower on top of it.
Like you say, there is no definition, but everybody can judge for them-self.

Well there are some criteria used to determine whether a building was a skyscraper such as steel truss and/or incorporation of elevator, etc.

Maybe because Canary Wharf is very Canadian in its appearance and design. It was inspired by Toronto.
