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.
There is no such thing as Donau City Financial Center...
I very much doubt your theory.

Given his love for London, he's probably english, therefore it's derby county football club.

My top 5 European Skylines by the end of 2013!

1. Moscow
A marvellous and massive city, combining the old and the new Russia. Amazing designs in the MIBC and I love the 7 Sisters. IMO Europe's best.

2. Paris
Such an elegant city, very compact and dense cluster. So beautiful, just lacks some height.. Very Americanised.

3. Frankfurt
Also known as ''Mainhattan'', this city definitely has a great, beautiful skyline. The financial heart of the Eurozone countries. Large amount of highrises, Frankfurt used to be my favourite in the EU.

4. Istanbul
The Gateway to the Orient, the quentessential city of Turkey. I love the booming skyscrapers standing in the background of historical minarets. Still lacks something iconic..

5. London
Classy highrise designs, glassy towers and the beautiful river Thames. London's skyline is among the continent's best, despite the fact that there are two separated clusters...

Honestly IStanbul has got also 2 or more cluster. London has got at least 2 iconic towers. So maybe Istanbul should be 5th and London 4th

BTW i don't understand the aim to be the "biggest city in Europe" thing. I wish Istanbul would be just 5-8 Mil

It's pure compensation/dick measuring. If they didn't achieve much themselves, their cities' skylines/skyscrapers have to compensate for that. And if the skylines aren't the best, then the biggest city has to do...
