London is much better than New York, its skyline is not...But the actual city is much better...London has great nightlife, but i will agree, Germany has amazing nightife

Best skylines in Europe 2015
Moscow/London
Istanbul
Paris
Frankfurt
can't think of anything for Rotterdam and Warsaw
the reason of this list is because Frankfurt has No major projects
so it is low in list. While others have.

@LondonFox
what happened to the Guardian Picture? It seems distorted(look at the thin gerkin). I think it should look like this.

London probably has a higher quality of building overall but it lacks the clustering effect of Franfurt, although I do think the fact that it has two clusters lend it a feel of a real megacity especially in the summer haze.

Moscow is great it's like an asian city really imposing towers it just needs a few more mid-rises in the cluster for me.

Paris has always been impressive because of its density and location when viewed from the Eiffel Tower, overall building quality is a little low however and those proposed twins are god awful, like the walkie talkie would in London, i think this would destroy the Paris skyline!

Overall I'd vote;

1 - Frankfurt
2 - London
3 - Moscow/Paris tied.
4 - Warsaw.


^ This is almost how I see it

I have deleted some photos of a small town skyline on this page and added the 'major cities only' to the title to clear the confusion.
