^ Well, at least, that buildings are in the European side of the city!

I would vote for Frankfurt.

I believe Rotterdam is dealing with some serious underestimating here. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but Vienna above R'dam? Please! Rotterdam may not have the tallest building, it is one of the few cities that has its highrises within the city and not at some remote CBD.

On the European shore and it shows Levent financial district in this picture. There are Maslak business and Sisli districts as well which aren't shown in this foto. On the Asian side, There's Kozyatagi business district.

Once again I'm having to delete posts because people can't stay on topic.

Please read the thread title - best CURRENT European skyline.

That means the skylines as they look right now! Not in the future.

I have to agree with you that Rotterdam is underestimated by many. It is one of those rare European cities that has a very modern central city, void of large scale historical buildings. Sadly because of the wartime destruction, but positive with the embracement of highrises.

I think Rotterdam is one of the most interesting cities in Europe, due to this modern Face, and also because of it’s facinating port geography.

I agree with Justeme I love Rotterdam skyline.
Unlike Paris, buildings in Rotterdam are slim and looks bigger than their real heights.
The tallest building of Rotterdam looks more at a 200m than at a 168m
