I think, I have to change my list a little:

1) Paris (up one)
The density of La Defense has really become amazing and more and more higher towers are rising up now.
Furthermore the iconic view with the modern arc right in the middle is very impressive and hardly beatable by any other highrise/skyscraper skyline in Europe. The Hermitage Towers, if build, will ruin and completely throw the skyline off balance for me though...

2) Frankfurt (down one)
Frankfurt long took the skyline crown for me, but it is unfortunately slowly loosing ground, especially to Paris. Still, Frankfurt has many tall, beautiful and iconic towers, that make the skyline very special and some nice new additions are underway in the next years. It's not as if the city is sleeping.

3) London
Were all towers in one big cluster, London would take the European crown... Unfortunately the skyline is split up in several small clusters, that are too far away from each other. If London keeps on booming, like it is, and will close the gaps between the individual clusters, it might move up in my list. But I guess, that will take some years...

4) Moscow
It should be among the top 4, I guess, even though I don't like Moscow's flashy and kitschy towers at all. I don't like the sea of commie block highrises either, that the vast rest of Moscow's skyline is made of. So Moscow takes the fourth place, because of quantity over quality.

5) Warsaw
Warsaw's skyline is slowly but constantly growing and getting taller and taller. From some angles it already looks better than London's skyline. What imho drags the overall rating of the skyline down, is the tower's grey, dull and boxy look. But with more and more new additions, that will probably change in the coming years.

Notable mentions:
Istanbul, Milan, Rotterdam, Vienna, Essen and Benidorm.

These cities have modern skyscrapers close to the historical core of the city. Within the skyscrapers district, new and old buildings coexist, which creates an unique value. Asian or american skylines can't beat that!

In a different group, Paris' La Defense, Moscow's CBD, Vienna's DonauCity, London's Canary Wharf, Madrid's Cuatro Torres: these are all attempts to build a brand new and isolated city at the border of the old one. In fact, these cluster are all located on the outskirts of the "traditional city". There is no dialogue, just contrast. Which is to some extent fascinating, but still, then you look at asian or american skylines and realize how much bigger and more impressive they are.

Europe can still be the first in the class when it manages to combine its outstanding historical heritage with modern architecture.

@SO143, most of your above pics have nothing to do with skylines!
