Maybe you mean the other cluster of Vienna highrises, known as "Wienerberg":

Wienerberg it is. Honestly I didn't know Vienna has got another cluster. What a shame.

No, but there are certain parts in the city a normal Viennese does not go to on a regular basis. Wienerberg is one of them. There's nothing to visit.

Still, you have to be a major ignorant not knowing this cluster, if you're from Vienna.

Now you know better.
Vienna has got 2 "major" clusters: Wienerberg and DC.
A third, yet smaller cluster is along the Danube canal in the inner city.

It would be interesting to see DC from Twin tower in Wienerberg just as we could see Wienerberg from DC (from Mischek tower I guess).

Well, the Millennium Tower pretty much stands for itself. While others like that unique status, I would have preferred to see it in the middle of the DC




The Danube Canal is more central than the Millennium Tower. As you can see in the following link, it consists of a couple of smaller ~100m highrises. http://tenneck.tk/Wien/Wien-von-oben...platz/DSC08317

If Vienna had all towers in one cluster, the skyline would be awesome. But maybe the two or more clusters is the right way in Vienna.
Anyway I would have preffed Millenium tower in DC too.

Wow this photo is nice ! I don't know why, but it remembers me Frankfurt Skyline (one big cluster, one isolated TV tower, and Offenbach )

It will look very nice with the new towers !


@Himmelwärtz : Thank you for the informations ! It is interresting to realize that in the "european skylines" topic, only one cluster is shown ! (sorry for my bad english!)
