Unnecessary stupid comment! I didn't say that I don't like it. But even Frankfurt beats London only hardly and would lose by far if London's buildings stood closer to each other!
Frankfurt and Paris are pretty same level with Paris overtaking Frankfurt because it is more dynamic like London also. And Warsaw is NOT better than London. And not YET better than frankfurt. But in 5 to 8 years Warsaw will have overtaken Frankfurt also. But by now MY OPINION is that it isn't any better than London. And Liverpool isn't any better either!

Now Ladies und Gentlemen,

FRANKFURT STILL HAS THE GREATEST SKYLINE IN THE EUROPEAN UNION

According to prevailing in this forum hype 'skyline' means
glass and concrete constructions covering the horizon and the more and the higher they are the better skyline is. Buildings should be also modern.
I'd say it's pretty limited def.
How the banal towers of today can beat
quality skyline of Rome, old Paris or Prague?

Ohhh nice

It would be a shame if you or any german voted for germany just because you are german!

I am german too and I voted for Frankfurt, because it has the best skyline in my opinion, but if Warsaw or London or Paris had a better skyline I would vote for these cities.

Schäm dich!

No other European city has so much skyscrapers packed together as Benidorm. It's my favourite because it's the most ugly by far!
