The Hague is so much better, the design of the skyscrapers are less boxy, and aesthetically more interesting. The proportions with the original city fabrics are good and towers are quite packed, making it a nice composition.

Rotterdam fell that its towers are more scattered, and sometime a bit out of proportion with its environment. The uniformed heights make it a bit less interesting than the Hague, but overall the towers have good cladds.
On the other hand, the front sea effect, and that great bridge give a great modern feel. Also, they plan to build a lot of residential towers there, and we will probably see some bigger projects that will give a more dynamic look.

I disagree.

Berlin was left in a worst situation in 45 than Warsaw.

Berlin is and was the capital and premier city of Germany and as such this should be reflected in it's skyline.

Warsaw is ok but it's buildings lack quality and finesse..and there's almost no diversity and variety.... and it's much smaller than London/Paris/Moscow/Istanbul too ... it's waaaaay off the big league in Europe .

First time doing a list.

1. Paris - just pefect mix of old and new. La Defense is imo the most beautiful skyscraper cluster in Europe.
2. Frankfurt - modern and very high quality.
3. Moscow - a little bit kitchy but impressive heights and good quality towers.
4. London - not sure why it gets the most praise, high quality but scattered and seen from a distance not that impressive.
5. Rotterdam - good quality and bad quality with some really unique designs.
6. The Hague - overall amazing quality, small and compact with a subtle hint to old Dutch architecture.
7. Warsaw - impressive growth, visited many times and amazing how fast it grows compared to my last visit a few years ago. Warsaw has a special place in my heart.
8. Milan - don't like the designs, but the cluster is of high quality.
9. Istanbul - scattered but awesome skyline with beautiful buildings between the generic stuff.
10. Oslo - not impressive at all in terms of scope and height compared to others in this list, but the quality of the highrises are amazing and were a real surprise to me.

Nope, I always think that too, seeing a picture of Milan's skyline.

Izmir, Turkey

Izmir is rising really fast. I believe it is going to be the first designated cbd area in Turkey.

If you add a supertall in the center of La Défense Paris will rank #1 by far.

Now it's not even in the top 3. It just needs something that makes it not so flat.

At a lower scale the same for Naples: it really needs a taller one.

The opposite for Madrid: it really needs some highrises around that towers ;-)

I need to disagree too

20 % of the whole Berlin was destroyed after the war and and 50% of the city center.
Quote:
Im Schnitt waren ein Fünftel (50 Prozent in der Innenstadt) der Berliner Gebäude zerstört.
84% of Warsaw's center was destroyed and 65% of the whole city was completely damaged

Berlin had a better political situation after the war too, at least half of it was democratic Warsaw on the other hand, was communistic until 1989.

And a capital city, doesn't need a huge skyline either Look at Amsterdam, Washington dc...
