Before being annexed by Prussia, Frankfurt had been the leading financial center and most important stock exchange in the German lands for centuries. Berlin only overtook Frankfurt in the 1860s. It seems quite natural that Frankfurt assumed its traditional role again after WWII.

1) London
2) Paris
3) Frankfurt

The amount of 200m+ buildings U/C in London is amazing, when finished, the London skyline will be one of my favorites

Many people seem to think Frankfurt is some kind of a new city, but in fact is has a much longer history than e.g. Berlin.

Frankfurt has boring skyscrapers and that's the true. So be realistic.
Post a few photos of what the London skyline will look in 2 years, with the renderings of the towers that are currently U/C, that will shut this idiot up!

I really like Moscow's IBC. Not the largest, but the most powerful looking skyline in Europe. Very impressive.

We have to wait for a while to claim this. Moscow city has only 5 constructed skyscrapers so far.

Many comments are about skylines in several years and how they will kick other asses then. After Frankfurt was rendered by ilfenomeno and me, and I took care about Paris, I finally photoshoped Londons near Future, too. (At skyscraperpage there is a quite high Project called "Tower NO 1" and it seems to be U/C. I did not find any further information about it. Will it be visible in the picture I choosed?)

London:

Paris:

Tough decision in future.

I don't see why everybody thinks Frankfurt has the best skyline. London's is much better and once the Shard, the Pinnacle, 122 leaded hall and all the other 200m+ ones are finished, London would have moved out of Frankfurt's league and will rival NYC.
