Soc Gen twins
Swiss Re
Commerzbank
Trianon
DG Bank Tower
Messeturm


Frankfurt has a wondefully rich variety of skyscrapers, almost all of which are architecturally distinguished. Trianon is amazing at night - looks like something out of Star Wars!

Don't know about the rest, I rather like Commerzbank, though.

I think you shouldn't be allowed to chose something from your home country that way we will get a more balanced view.

I am a fan of the Torre Agbar it looks great at night.

Messeturm is the best tower in Europe you mean.

My list would be like this:

1: Messeturm (Frankfurt)
2: One Canada Square (London)
3: St. Mary's Axe (or whatever the Hell it's called now)
4: Millennium Tower (Vienna)
5: Westendstra▀e 1 (Frankfurt)

Honourable mention goes to the Warsaw Trade Tower and the Main Tower Frankfurt.

I'm more to conventional building shapes. That's why I love Messeturm and One Canada.

Messeturm all the way, because it looks very similiar to Bank of America in Atlanta, U.S.A. and also, it is the tallest skyscraper I have visited in Europe so far!!

Messeturm for sure is one hot soab but european it is not,more an american copypaste.
And that commerzbank tower is realy ugly!i cant believe people love it!
Ofcourse im from The Hague so i love the hoftower,but its probably not the best eventhough it won several prizes concerning architecture i dont think people even know this tower exists.anyway ...mm.mmmm...the best is probably the turning torso first of a revolution, and not that fat tampon in London.
