Frankfurt has got a stock exchange, is the headquarter to the biggest Banks of Germany and of course the ECB and therefore one of the best Skylines in Europe.

Rotterdam has one of the biggest harbours in the world and the biggest one in Europe.

Correct, but this has barely any effect on the office(building) market. Most port related firms are located in and around the port areas. Besides that lots of high-rises in Rotterdam are residential towers or mixed use towers.

Frankfurt's skyline is stunning with the Main River in front. I like the Parisian skyline's classyness but I wish it had more textures, architectural styles and colors.

I would go with Vienna's skyline. Though it's still rising, I love it:

I want to like the Paris skyline, but it just doesn't work for me. It looks overly planned and homogenous. A lot of the newer skylines around the world have the same issues. The layering and organic growth you see in cities that have been building tall for generations usually look better.

Off topic: I'm also trying to post a lot of photos while traveling, especially photos of metro systems.

In Moscow, we have got hundreds of items under construction, skyscrapers, lowrises, road and metro construction, so, I'm keeping eyes on all possible.
