Obviously, Frankfurt is the clear winner!

London seems nice but I think Warsaw deserves the number 2 spot!

I don't like La Defense, I don't know why.

Yes, Benidorm looks like one of the 3rd World cities packed with ugly middle-income residentials like in Africa or South America!

Hmmm, im not sure if you guys will be able to watch this video as it is on the BBC's iplayer service, but give it a go and see what London will look like come the 2012 Olympics.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/britainfromabov...odelling.shtml

I hope you would agree that over the next 4-5 years, London will get a skyline to match anywhere in Europe...oh, and remember even this video doesnt show all the towers that are going to be built.

Ps.

If you guys cant watch the video, post and let me know and i will remove the link.

I like a lot of the European skylines, but I like these the best:

1= Rotterdam
2= Frankfurt
3= Paris

In my opinion, Madrid has a very beautiful skyline, and one of the best in Europe. Here you can see some pictures:











Had you realized that Los Angeles skyline looks like Madrid skyline?

MADRID


LOS ANGELES

This is how skyscrapers construction works in Europe
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=333931 On hold

The new ECB headquarter will be on hold soon, too.
I also doubt that any city in the EU will have a skyscraper over 300m in the next 10 years.

Europe is on a very low level. On that level i like Frankfurts skyline the most. London is second.
Been on the Eifel Tower and the skyline of Paris is tiny compared to the massive city. Still the city itself is beautiful, most beautiful i have visited.
I put it behind Warsaw. Warsaw has a nice mix of old and new.

But no city skylines in the EU even come close to cities like Toronto, Singapore, Seoul or Tokyo. And i haven`t even mentioned the biggest skylines.


Don`t forget i talk only about skylines. So don`t think i bash the entire cities.

Hum, big skylines aren't always good skylines. I know many examples of cities packed with highrises and 90% at least is crap!!!
