Haven´t been to Frankfurt so I can´t really comment on te skyline but it looks really good.

La defense is quite big and dense but London´s skyscrapers are more intersting and Canary Wharf is more pleasant at street level. Both cities have great historic buildings on their skylines.Tie.

Madrid and Warsaw are also looking good.

I like Liverpool (loads of potential there) as well as Brussels and Rotterdam.

I think these pictures make Frankfurt look tiny, you are in open countryside after a couple of miles of those scrapers.

Well to be honest i dont know how anyone could say anything other than...Frankfurt!!!!
It has far and away the best skyline, and I think even looks unto a North American standard!...

But Paris also looks quite good, even though you never seem to be able to see it when your there...i also like the skyline for Warsaw, it looks like a 1890s New York City skyline

London > Paris > Liverpool

Frankfurt's skyline seems really bare and unattractive.
Liverpool is small but aesthetically very good.

Paris, no competition. with the Eiffel Tower, La Defense and its Grande Arche... mwaaaahhh


Barcelona's skyline makes me laugh. it says "Hi! Barcelona wants to do you"

actually, that's not such a bad thing. if they actually had that as their slogan, i'd go there.

I don´t like the skyline of Liverpool and Warsaw. Liverpool has only 2 highrises, and the highrises of Warsaw are ugly.

Maybe the best skyline in Europe is Frankfurt. Paris-La Defense also has a very nice skyline. But in the future, MADRID. I'm sure. The projects for the Spain's capital are impressive. .

Warsaw
Developers have submitted some 30 new projects for high-rises. Among those in the pipeline is a 1,017-foot (350-meter) giant, which is only in the initial planning stages, that would be Europe's tallest building.
