I think Istanbul and Rotterdam should be the #4th and #5th skyline of Europe (Istanbul maybe even the 3th in the future, after Frankfurt (#1st) and Paris/Warschaw (2nd)).

For me Frankfurt, London, Istanbul and Rotterdam have the best skylines in Europe.

Frankfurt Skyline

Hi first of all! This is my first post here. I want to post a few pictures of the Frankfurter Skyline. In my opinion it is the best CURRENT Skyline in Europe!

To me it would be something like that:

1. Paris
2. Frankfurt
3. London
4. Warsaw

Thank god that in Parisian skyline there's not Eiffel Tower. Historical buildings never look nice with skyscrapers. That's why to me Moscov with its socrealistic buildings it's too much mixed and diversed. Many factory chimneys (and its smoke) looks horiblle as well. Why u r giving it to poll, the bigger doesn't the better.

Euroscrapers is unique of putting its skyscrapers outside city centres or the traditional core just like what Paris did. But the tallest scraper in the city is still in the traditional core.

This part of the Moscow's skyline includes Moscow-city super tall cluster that is growing quickly. Now the highest skyscraper is 268 tall. In 5 months the tallest one will have 284 metres. In one year the first super tall will be seen. By 2012 the Russia tower (612 m) and several super talls will be built.

Currently I think Frankfurt is my favorite. Also Rotterdam, London and Paris are very nice. Moscow is a coming skyline and so is Istanbul.

Moscow's skyline is nice but its spread out kinda like BKK or Seoul. Its not like Frankfurt or La Defense where you have a nice cluster of scrapers.

But Moscow is still in the top 5

It'll be interesting to see how the projects in and near the City will transform and broaden London's skyline and create 2 major clusters with Canary Wharf. There are so many cranes in air from looking across the Thames at City Hall.

As with The City of London, there are those in favour of scrapers and those who oppose it.

All of Europe's main skylines are growing fast so it's hard to forecast a lot of change in these positions IMO.

1. London
2. Paris
3. Moscow
4. Istanbul
5. Warsaw
6. Rotterdam
7. Frankfurt
8. Barcelona
9. Liverpool
10. Benidorm

Sorry I don't really like Frankfurt. A skyline shouldn't subtract from the essence of its city..it should offer plenty of reflection of it, and London's and Liverpool's do that remarkably well. I don't think Benidorm is as awful-looking as some think it is..it looks just like a lot of the US' major coastal resort cities, except a little older. I recognize that soon Madrid will probably overtake Rotterdam's spot on my list, but I don't see a lot of other change. Maybe if Brussels took on some more density, maybe..and honorable mention goes to Vilnius and The Hague. Ironically from some vantage points Istanbul looks like the most American-like of the lot, and then from other vantage points it looks like the least American-like of the lot. Odd, huh?

That's just this one American's perspective, though.

I didn't see much of a skyline per se in Barcelona, but the sea of low and midrise buildings is quite impressive, with a few skyscrapers popping up now and then. The view from the Olympic site up the hills was magnificent.
