Not all of them. Only those of two cities from the list.

i think warsaw doesn't have a sufficient amount of towers for an impressive skyline. rotterdam doesn't have very large/tall ,buildings. frankfurt has to few lower towers. london and paris are at my oppinion not suitable for a central skyline,due to their historical city centers. I like cities with skyscrapers in the city center best,like most american cities. rotterdam has about just as much historical buildings as the prototype american city. i like old buildings amoung (modern) skyscrapers. warsaw and frankfurt have split their centers in two.
one part is mostly historical,and the other half is mostly modern,which I think looks very nice. it gives cities two characters.
frankfurt-cbd on some foto's, looks like an expencive neighbourhood with some skyscrapers standing amoung the residences.
here is my ranking list:

#1: Fankfurt am main,simply the best skyline in the EU and in europe also.

#2: Paris, great buildings. the skyline doesn't have an optimal location,because you cannot simply tear down Paris' awesome historical center.

#3: Rotterdam, it has alot of future potential. Rotterdam's center is undergoing an "extreme makeover"

#4: London, many fat-looking skyscrapers, but fair to good quality.

#5: Warsaw, has to few towers unfortunately,but is also impressive. the quality of the towers that are there is good.
