You are right.

Rotterdam urban area has got 1,3 m inhabitants (300 km2)
Rotterdam larger urban area (incl. Drechtsteden) 1,6 m (400 km2)
Rotterdam/The Hague metro area 2,9 m inhabitants (660 km2)
Rotterdam Randstad metropolitan area 7,1 m inhabitants (4300 km2)

Frankfurt/ urban area has got 2,5 m inhabitants on 4100 km2

Rotterdam urban area is far more denser than Frankfurt which is more spread out.

Well, that is not entirely true. Frankfurt's urban area is said to have 2.2m people in an area of 2,500m^2: http://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regio...kfurtRheinMain
and the metro area has about 5.5m within an area of 14,800km^2: http://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhein-Main-Gebiet

The Randstad metro area (7.1m) covers an area of about 8,287km^2: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randstad

However, you are definitely right that R'dam's urban area has a much higher population density.

Plus I don't think we Europeans, have that much skylines to be so snob.

Rotterdam meets european criterias for skylines.

Of course it belongs in here, it's got a very good skyline, especially considering its size compared with the bigger European cities like London, Moscow and Paris, and the fact that it's a port city, not a major financial centre like Frankfurt or Warsaw. It's a nice-looking city with a lot of potential, and easily has one of the best skylines in Europe.

And there's no need to say "like this post if...", people choose to like a post if they think it contains interesting information or they agree strongly with something that has been said. You don't need to tell them to like it, or request that they do so - the 'like' button is there for people to use freely, not when they're told to.

That's some serious like-whoring right there.

If people don't post their Rotterdam pictures they wouldn't post pictures of London/Moscow/Paris instead - it would just mean the thread was shorter and less enjoyable. Relax.

Rotterdam has a fantastic skyline, I've said many times before but I love Dutch tower architecture!
