I gotta agree with Singidunum! The "old' city of Paris and the "new" city of La Defense go together so well that it doesn't matter that La Defense lacks new supertalls.

Honorable mention to Istanbul. I nominated it as one of my three, but I would still put it behind Paris and Frankfurt.

What, Paris is not leading??!!! Sorry, Frankfurt is only an Americanized CBD-concentrated post-war creation (I am only talking about the skyscrapers of course ) IF we talk European, then it must be a city that IS European... Frankfurt is as European as Singapore is Asian

I'll go with Paris, it's dense and cool, maybe a bit boxy. Frankfurt after it, they're in the same class IMO

Le Défence = #1 Most impressive density and striking contrast with the 'older' Paris
Frankfurt = #2 Pure height matters after all...
Rotterdam = #3 The best combination of architecture, height & position
Warsaw = #4 On its way, but the old commie blocks just ruin a higher position

Paris doesn't have much height in it's little dense La Defense cluster tho.

Rubbish.

Canary Wharf has much more impressive hieght. Can't deny that Framkfurt is the best.

Today, Frankfurt wins. But perhaps in a not so distant future Warsaw will have the most impressing skyline

Can't wait until this is added to the Warsaw skyline!

I'm surprised Paris wins here and not in this thread.
Anyway, those pics look cool:

Paris

Paris, maybe back in the '70's. Frankfurt without a doubt is the best.
