La defence looks great and dense, and the last new tower with the pointy roof looks really, really amazing. But the skyline looks EXTREMELY post 2000. It looks just like what it is: a business district. London for example, really has some good overlapping layers from different ages in history, canary wharf looks like La defence, while The City skyline has a much more futuristic look, and as a new stand alone the great new building The Shard as a major new icon for London. And oh yes, there are the old (clock)towers too, who are quite tall and therefore are a real adition to the skyline. So that makes London my favorite.

Spot 2 and 3 are for either Frankfurt or Moscow. Moscow really almost looks alien to me, a very (i think densest) dense cluster of (super)talls whit a real futuristic look. Frankfurt is just amazing for being a real jawdropper. Totally unexpected really it made itself serious competition to some large USA city skylines.

4 is Rotterdam. The city is going strong now for many years, in Dutch standards. Its the only real skyscrapercity in The Netherlands, and is adding amazing architecture up untill today. There are several clusters in the wide spreaded skyline, with quite a few iconic and unique buildings. The tallest tower is around 160 meter now, with no plans to go 200+ any time soon. Thats the major reason for me to keep it out of the top 3, but i think Rotterdam will beat Frankfurt in the long run.

5 is La Defence for earlier given reasons.
6 Benidorm: little Hong Kong, but its just filled with very ugly buildings.
7. Warsaw. A few nice buildings, but it needs more density and variety (a shiny looking tower maybe)
