Sorry mate, Frankfurt is clearly the winner here. Being the biggest city nor having the biggest skyline does not constitute being the "BEST" european skyline. Don't get me wrong though, London is still one of the best in Europe. Still, Frankfurt it is!

Since I have to agree completely. It is a joke to denote London as the largest skyline.

By the way, moscow is the largest city in Europe, not London.

Almost, Istanbul is the largest city populationwise. Though size is no guarantee for the best skyline.

Regarding just the skyline, to me Moscow is an obvious winner, but that's only my personal opinion on the matter. To me a skyline does not have to be wide nor vast to be considered the best. It are the single buildings towering over a city, favorable with a simple yet elegant design, that get my vote. With that perspective Moscow is the obvious winner, though if you'd demand integration into the urban landscape, then Frankfurt and Milan are both contestants for that price. La Défense, Canary Wharf, The City, Maslak... they are nice and vast in what they are, but they often feel like islands within a city, having lost touch with it. They are impressive, nonetheless,, but that's not the main thing a skyline (or a building) should be.

Moscow is the most populous city in Europe, but London is the most populous city in the EU.

Ok, guys, just say that London is the biggest city in the World, with the biggest skyline in order to not hurt DCFC1's feeling.

Now, please stop appearing and polluting this thread!

Largest city -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Largest_cities_in_Europe
1) Istanbul
2) Moscow
3) London

Now can we get back to the best skyline? Not biggest city. Best skyline. Nothing to do with size or scale. Just ...best.

PS. I would rather live in a city with 1.5 million than a nightmare with 13 million. Easier/cheaper to get around, less polluted, less noisy, more social etc

London is the largest city in the EU...Not that size means much.
DCFC pipe down already, it's honestly cringe-worthy some of the things you say.

Stop trolling here.

The Frankfurt Metropolitan Region is the second largest metropolitan region in Germany, with a total population exceeding 5.8 million. I am one of them.

Do your shitty homework before you try to bash here.

DCFC just trying to ruin this thread. Just do not look at it.

DCFC stand with sure for Donau City financial center.
Probably the boy comes from Vienna and hates Frankfurt because it has a larger skyline. Who knows.
