I don`t mean only the amount. Hong Kong has moe skyscrapers than New York, but New York has by far the best skyline in the world.
Chicago has only 50% of Londons buildings over 35m but it`s number 3 in the world in my opinion.

That's right! Frankfurt could easily catch up worldwide with two 400+ and 3 300+ m buildings with good style! But that is pretty impossible.
And no one will ever beat the NYC classics! NYC and Chicago are classics and no Burj Dubai or WFC will change this!

Frankfurt for now have the best skyline in Europe, not only E.U.

Madrid would had been one of the best skylines, but the skyscrapers are to far away...

Here are the "mini clusters":

Cluster 1. the old skyscrapers.



Cluster 2. financiar district







Cluster 3. puerta de europa





Cluster 4. quatro torres

1) Rotterdam: fantastic harbour city with original architecture and ambition
2) Frankfurt: Best towers
3) London: super city
4) Madrid: great new towers


About Brussels and Amsterdam Zuid-As: although great developments not impressive enough.
Warshau doesn't catch me yet.
The Hagua is catching me with original buildings
Birmingham?? Naaaaa
