The Rotterdam skyline is pretty nice but the buildings are kinda smallish compared to la defense or frankfurt.

I think that Frankfurt lack density and that Paris lack height but for me these two are at the top, followed by London and Rotterdam.

1: Paris
2: Frankfurt
3: London
4: Rotterdam

Well, if you like a skyline it doesn't need to be high does it?
