Any source?

To be perfectly objective, Paris is the European city which has the more high-rise buildings.

Source : Wikipedia (in french)

68 buildings over 100m in the Paris metropole area.
111 buildings over 90m in the Paris metropole area.

What about London?

Paris has more skyscrapers than both London and Frankfurt. This is true! I think that Moscow is the only city in Europe that has more 100+ than Paris.

Listen up everybody... London's skyline is not a skyline and it only has one nice building

According to wikipedia 47 buildings over 100m of which 4 are over 200. Then there's 10 or so buildings over 100m u/c of which one will be over 200m, one over 250m and one over 300m. Quite a few buildings just under 100m in the London region I guess, couldn't find any statistics though.

Frankfurt has 29 buildings over 100m.

Comparing Berlin with Paris and London is ridiculous. So is comparing London/Paris with Frankfurt. ;D

Yes, maybe in 20 years, when Berlin sucked out every single euro out of Bavaria, Hesse, Baden Württemberg and other prosperous regions of Germany.

Just joking

Not even the Romans managed to conquer the whole of Britain.

Infact on their maps of their Empire northern England and Scotland was eradicated and the map ended at Hadrians wall.

They called it the end of the world as anything beyond that never returned.

Also you'll note Britain's population was forged by tribes during these invasions. The scarce population of Britain was so tiny compared it's attempted conquerers it was the equivelant of the US in Vietnam.

The Anglo Saxons have nothing to do with modern Germany.

It's pointless posting threads about London in world forums, it always just incites jealous trolling from people who are clearly not architecture fans but just anti-British.
