But they have more high-rise buildings.
Brussels, Naples and The Hague have also better Skylines than Birmingham or Manchester.


Naples



Brussels

While Birmingham and other less common European cities might not have first-rate skylines, I'd still argue they have a place here too. At least they spice things up from seeing the same cities posted over and over. I personally prefer Liverpool and even Leeds over Birmingham, but it's not like Birmingham is empty either. Here are some shots I took during my swift 20 minute visit last summer. (I was actually going to Manchester)

Birmingham Skyline (sorta)

I don't think UK skylines are great at all, but I prefer Leeds over Birmingham

Well kissme, it depends on what you classify as a skyscraper.

This forum classifies skyscrapers as 200-299 metres and supertalls as 300 metres plus.

On these measures Paris has:

2 x skyscrapers:
Tour First - 231 metres
Tour Montparnasse - 210 metres

and

0 x supertalls

If you said this is a picture of a suburb in Kiev or Moscow, I would believe it! Thanks for spicing up the thread a bit. We were bored of seeing the same cities over and over again.

Ok good. Now we've got it sorted. Why is this thread still happening then?

Moscow, London, Istanbul, Frankfurt and Paris.

The question is simple - what is Europes BEST skyline. A singular. According to you if it's based on Height and Numbers then those are the only 5 cities we can talk about.
