Best non-skyscraper in a skyline

Can be anything that isn't a building - tower, monument, ferris wheel, cathedral...

Here's an absolute winner for me:

Yeah it's amazing, for a long time of my life I didn't even know they were so close to the city and there's some great skyline shots with them.

Good stuff so far. Hard to beat, though, a view of La Défense with the Eiffel Tower in it as well.

Sydney's Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Centrepoint Tower.

These three icons along with the waterfront setting, are what makes Sydney stand out.

Nearby the cathedral, the Cologne railway terminal (from Deutsche Bahn/DB) and the Rhein river.
At the bottom, the Deutsche Telekom tower.
Wonderful place!
