London is still quite a bit behind in terms of Skyscrapers but give us a couple of years and we will overtake Paris and Frankfurt, and Istanbul.

In terms of an overall skyline, with the church spires etc, and the varierty of Architecture, then I'd say London.

Skyscraperwise, at the moment, Frankfurt.

I think that in a few years Athens will show us up a futuristic skyline in its northern neighborhood of Maroussi.

The city has been and still is under a continously improvement of its infrastructures (highways, metro, tram, airport, central train station, highspeed train in a few months); now the time has come for ultrastructure modernization (a prove of this is the Kalatrava arch in the stadium which surpasses the 80mts). I think something is being cooked in secret and is going to be unveiled very soon.

So accordingly for the moment now I vote for Paris and then Frankfurt but I think that in a few years Athens will have its chances to win some votes.

Paris is still ahead for me, on one head you've got the first business district in Europe with la Defense and on the other, Paris itself loaded with domes, spires, and world famous landmarks. But I believe that London or Madrid may be on top in a short time, as Paris is not building major skyscrapers anymore.

No doubt I'll be accused or bias, but I have to say London has the best skyline in terms of historical buildings and most modern skyscrapers in Europe.
