I would say the five tallest of Frankfurt are the top 5 of Europe. But some towers in Vienna, the Turning Torso and the future Madrid supertalls would create a new list, also the 2 300+ of London.
interesting that many find taller=better.

NightSky Took These Pics

Swiss RE, Its not to say I dont like it, Its just Ive sort of gotten sick of seeing it everywhere, Like a song you really like, you listen to it over and over again untill you cant stand it anymore and start to hate it.

@Peyre the top 5 tallest are not the tallest in Europe, Like the DB Bank and Main Tower aren't the tallest of europe. But I like these towers which dominate Frankfurts skyline teh most, and I'm not german or something, I just think they are the most beautifull.

^ The design is highly original and creative, but it seems a bit "thin" - looks like it might topple over. Also, I think it would look better as part of a cluster.

Yeah in the last pic it does look like its falling over.

And it does look stupid on its own....any tall buildings planned for the area around it.

1. Commerzbank
2. HSBC
3. Pirelli, Milan/ Alpha, Birmingham
4. Turning Torso
5. Millenium Tower, Vienna

Generally, European Skyscrapers have miles to go to better NA and Asian Skyscrapers.

@ eddyk: no

Jerv, why do you think that? Because Asian and NA are higher? Or something else?

Not because of height. I think asian skyscrapers have more daring designs. Europeans are more reserved in terms of architecture. American ones (especially Chicago and NY) are just classy. Way ahead of europe chronologically speaking, in the 60's, 70's and 80's (look at John Hancock centre, Trans America pyramid etc). Granted, I'm not so fond of the newer NA skyscrapers.
