Copenhagen has a very neat historical skyline, however there's not much to talk about on this thread when it comes to its modern skyline (it's a place of great contemporary low- to mid-rise architecture though).
A dozen of 60 - 120m highrises scattered around...

If you mean only 100m building, Germany also has some to offer.
Frankfurt
Berlin

Essen
Dusseldorf
Hamburg
Bonn
Leipzig
etc.
Yup, Germany is understimated.

Anyway even in Italy there are many cities with at least one tower +100m (modern highrises, not historic towers)

Milano,
Napoli,
Genova,
Roma,
Torino,
Brescia,
Bologna,
Latina,
Rimini,
Jesolo,
Cesenatico,
and other ones...

Thank you for the kind Words, my friend

When it comes to highrises or skyscrapers in Denmark, we only have two 100+ highrises, both in lovely Copenhagen (102m and 120m). Both buildings are from 60/70s and nothing to write home about

Right now a number of highrises are being built in Aarhus and Copenhagen reaching almost 100 meters and there are plans for building several 100+ towers, but such plans could go either way, if you get my point

I have never postet a photo from Denmark in this thread, as this is for the best skylines in Europe ...but I sometimes post skylinephotos from Aarhus in the 'European Cities Skylines' thread

My latest top ten ...


1. London... Easily the biggest city in Europe. The skyline has a quality other European skylines lack.

2. Frankfurt... Small town in Germany but the skyline from most angles knocks you out ..

3. Paris. ..too boxy and bland for me but heck .. Its Paris .

4 . Moscow .. Want to but cannot ignore the kitsch towers in Moscow ..

5 . Warsaw .. Getting better all the time to use a Beatles song ..

6 .Istanbul .. Massive.. Sprawling .. Beautiful .. The future ..

7 . Rotterdam .. Not beautiful but ... A skyline hard to ignore ..

8 . Birmingham .. Overlooked city on here which has a cool skyline and quality buildings .

9 . Milan .. Clearly going places... The future ..

10. Vienna .. . beautiful Vienna .

Paris- has the cluster and width of a good solid skyline. Some of the designs are nice.
Frankfurt- has some great quality buildings and has the stretch of a nice, classic skyline.
London - has the height and I dig some of the unique designs of the towers.
Warsaw- nice, solid cluster with its very own "Empite State" building. I like the quality of the designs. Width of skyline also good. Should be able to match Frankfurt in a few years.
Moscow- love the designs and height but it doesn't stretch enough along the horizon.

Honorable mention to Milan.

(I had a tough time deciding between Frankfurt and London).

I don't really like it, since the Messeturm (best Skyscraper in Europe) is barely visible. But the Maintor project will quite expand the skyline from this angle
