I have a few favourites but here are a couple of my home town, Sydney which I'd rate as one of the best. Hong Kong and New York are my equal two favourite skylines for sure though!

I'm a Berliner and I can say that Berlin has no outrageous and overwhelming skyline. And I can say that Cosmo is the greatest of all skyscraper citizens.

But a skyline doesn't need to have many skyscrapers. It can be also cool with churches and other old things. I like this picture from Berlin:

Wait a few years and Berlin will have some nice buildings more. I don't care about skylines. The cities themselves are interesting, not their skylines.

I love Berlin as a city, but it's skyline isn't pretty. Even in the category of "historical skylines" there are cities like Paris or London that are far more pleasing to the eye. Berlin has other qualities...

Ground Zero

I think it is more important how cities look from the ground.

I imagine most people on here do too, but this is a skyline thread on a skyscraper site. No doubt Berlin is a far more pleasing city at street level than Dubai or Miami, but some of these big skyline cities are great from the air and at street level.

In the modern world, skyscrapers are a symbol of economic might and wealth. All the dominant cities are building them. It says a lot that Germany's skyscrapers are going up in Frankfurt, not Berlin.
