SO123 is transforming this thread into a garbage. And of course, noone can stop him

You do not seem to know much about German skyscrapers. Otherwise you would not say something like that.

You'll see, in 5-10 years you mentioned Berlin in one breath with Rotterdam.



to compare: Top 5 German cities & UK cities (100m buildings today)

Germany

Frankfurt=31 (259m)
Berlin=10 (125)
Cologne=10 (149m)
Munich=6 (146m)
Dusseldorf= 3(125m)
Hamburg=3 (110m)

United Kingdom

London=45 (310m)
Manchester=4 (169m)
Birmingham=2 (122m)
Leeds= 2 (112m)
Liverpool=1 (140m)
I don't want to break it down for you by explaining irrelevant circumstances. You really have to observe the differences between Germany and UK first before you establish the comparisons. UK is a highly centralized country like France (Oh I'd suggest you make a list for France too). A huge chunk of the country's strength and GDP etc is gathered within one city. For example, almost all the 500 Fortune companies of France are based in Paris (only) and the same methodology applies to the UK as well. However, Germany is an opposite in this aspect. It's companies and important factories are scattered across the country and due to this reason alone makes more German cities ranked in Global cities ranking compared to other European cities. I enjoy discussing things in a civilised way and I'd encourage you do some little research first before you take a shot. Anyway, Berlin is an amazing capital of Germany and Frankfurt is a vital financial hub of all the Eurozone countries and even European Central Bank (ECB) is based there. I think Frankfurt is probably the most powerful financial centre in Europe after London and Switzerland.

Sure, a 100 meter building is a low-rise. Don't be ridiculous.

You'll see, in 5-10 years you mentioned Berlin in one breath with Rotterdam.
Firstly, I told you so, you posted really crappy pictures of Berlin to proof your point, of it having a great skyline. It does, but certainly not on these pics...

Secondly, why are you even arguing with NWTS aka SO123? He's one of the biggest London/UK infatuated trolls in this forum. There's really no point.

And last but not least, why would you want to mention Berlin in one breath with Rotterdam? No offense to Rotterdam, but Berlin is one of the most famous, amazing and significant capitals of the world...
You don't need no super large glass and steel dicks to proof that to everyone.

Could this be the Staudinger power plant in Großkrotzenburg.

Distance from Frankfurt's banking district (estimated) 18 km
Is definitely outside of Frankfurt. I can see Offenbach before.

Frankfurt expands more of an east-west direction.
Check it out on Google Maps. Then you have a rough idea of the size.

Isn't it a bit ironic when you realise that I am neither from London/UK nor British. I love all the metropolises and I represent for every elite metropolis in the world. I am also one of very few members on SSC who posts pictures of all the finest cities whereas other people post the images of their city only.

You have many accounts and keep on trolling, you've made ppl hate London and UK. Congratulations for the well done sabotage.
