I agree antenna’s or spires add something nice to a skyline.. but the only problem with Warsaw is that it has to many buildings with an antenna therefore demolishing the skyline-view in general. Frankfurt only has 1 big spire and antenna (Commerzbank) and 1 smaller antenna one on the maintower.

The first statement is a fact and the second one an opinion.
I agree Warsaw skylines is full of giant antenas its like a radio station district

To me, antennas and spires do in most cases (unless they are tiny or really thin) visually contribute to the height of a building. Looking at a skyscraper I don't chop of the antenna or spire in my mind, just because on paper it isn't included in the official height. That's dumb, lol. Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt for example has a very visible spire that is crucial for the the overall design and proportion of the structure. Looking at it, it is 300 metres tall to my eyes, not 259. Same goes for the new World Trade Tower or the Sears Tower.

Now some skyline pics of Francoforte sul Meno:

for me the Commerzbank Tower and the whole Skyline would look better if the Tower would be cut just above the sign of the bank.

I like the spire on the Commerzbank Tower with the lighting in the evening it gets a really evil feeling... I love that.

London was too years ago.
Most European cities are just not built like that.
But yea i guess a lot of Berlin was destroyed during WW2, so they could have definitely built a skyline with skyscrapers, but that's not what they were going for.

I love Berlin.

I wonder how Madrid is going to do once the Operación Chamartin starts; it will allegedly have the talles skyscraper in Europe.
