Nice pics, Rotterdam skyline looks very unusual, many towers have suprising shapes and colors not your typical glass towers.

looks very industrial on your picture(s) with a touch of commieblock-architecture, could be also a district in moscow or such

Okay F'furt has better looking higrises than R'dam, but I've been in F'furt a couple of times and I find F'furt itself u ugly looking city. The central train station is impressing and big. I like the hundreds of junkies next to it also
Rotterdam is overal a much more modern and better looking city as Frankfurt.

I thought this thread is about "The best skyline in the European Union (EU)" and not about "Junkies at train stations"!?

Well, but it is so easy to bash a city if one doesn't say where one comes from. Since envy is often really ugly! At least I think he isn't from Rotterdam...

This is a really old pic, the windsor tower is burnt, the four towers were in early construction at the time.

So any official news on the new Windsor tower? I do like the angle from where the picture was taken. Anyone has a newer one from a similar point that will show the 4 towers also?

@SASCH SFC - Lol, I guess you've never been to Rotterdam. They realy need to work on the streets, it's as ugly as hell. .
If you have pictures from the skyline or above it's nice, but the streets aren't always that nice.
Luckily they are currently changing the streets. More trees and other pavement
