I know Frankfurts skyline becomes more impressive because of the relatively low rise around it, but it just looks fantastic and is what Urban Planning should all be about.

Benidorm is just a tacky thin strip of land occupied by the most ugly and cheap apartment blocks ... Jeez...

This is what makes me laff about threads like this all over this site. .. I could say the same for the Gold Coast in OZ .. You just get suckered into certain angles and shots from a lens whilst missing the bigger picture.

Well, I find other cities in Europe much more attractive but again, this is my personal opinion.

Difficult choice, europe has some good skylines now, so I'll list the strengths and weaknesses of the skylines
#1 MOSCOW
has great height and some really cool designs, it is at the end of its boom now, with the last couple of towers going up now, not many future projects but still the best in europe
#2 LONDON
booming city, I read somewhere that it has more 100m+ towers under construction than frankfurt,paris,warsaw,rotterdam and milan COMBINED, it is still in the middle of its boom with next year and thevyear after being full of 200m+ towers, however it can look a bit disorganised with clusters everywhere
#3 FRANKFURT
perfect skyline, it would be number one if it had more construction going on, the towees are nearly all of great design and great cladding, from some angles its unbeatable
#4 PARIS
I was going to put istanbul in fourth place, but la defenses density deserves respect, has some cool towers and some poor towers, but overall it looks great, a few 200m+ towers and it could challenge the top cities, never underestimate paris, it moves in cycles, and when the next prooerty cycle comes along, I can easily see them putting up a new round of towers
#5 ISTANBUL
has so many towers under construction, from some angles looks great, in two or three years it will be up there with moscow and london
#6 WARSAW
great towers going up, is getting denser but needs a stand out tower, the warsaw spire could be it
#7 ROTTERDAM
good density, good architecture and great setting, ciuld use some taller and towers and office towers
#8 MILAN
Great quality towers, lots of construction, will soon climb up the tabke to challenge warsaw and rotterdam
#9 THE HAGUE
beautiful traditional towers, probably the classiest skyline in europe
#10 BIRMINGHAM
because its my local big city and I love it
