And I consider most of the so called skylines here un-impressive.
Obviously some users confuse a chunk of faceless buildings as a skyline.

Berlin has indeed one of the most iconic and diverse skylines in Europe.
Its the tallest as well.

I call that impressive.

First of all that tv tower isn't a building. Second, great architecture is what makes a great skyline. Berlin doesn't have much great architecture from what I can see.

Give me one good reason why it beats any of these cities

Chicago


NYC


Hong Kong


Berlin is a beautiful city, but it's skyline is virtually non existent.

Thanks to NYGuy for finding this and sharing it on SSP, and NY is making a strong case for being at #1 if it isn't already there.

Manila has scale, but it tends to look like a monotonous sea of sameness. It needs 3-4 quality buildings that stand out from the crowd.

Yeah, do looks like two neighbouring cities. The Jersey City skyline overlapped the Lower Manhattan skyline though.

I didn't expect the midtown-manhattan and Lower Manhattan are so far apart. It shows me about 3.5 km on google earth.
