Rotterdam in no way has a better skyline then London. Birmingham-yes, Liverpool-yes probably although the waterfront images are very good. I don't think Rotterdam has a beautiful skline really. Very spread out stumpy boxes, nothing grabs the attention and there seems to be no real focal point. It's lucky it's in Europe and that most other cities are terrible!

^You've probably never been to Rotterdam? Rotterdam is famous for it's architecture and unique designs.
Think about The Red Apple, Cube houses, Erasmusbridge, Coopvaert and a lot more desings and buildings.
But never mind. I except your opinion. But calling it ugly or weird just sounds funny to me.

Frankfurt's skyline is amazing, I saw it with my own eyes last week there really isn't much competition.

Birmingham...

Oh Chris, you don't respect others opinions. Don't try to convince other people that the skyline of Rotterdam is beautiful. People can make there own opinions.

I also don't like the skyline of Rotterdam. It are almost all boxes, without elegance. My opinion is that Amsterdam and The Hague has a more beautiful skyline than Rotterdam. Ok, Rotterdam has more and higher buildings, but that's it.

London is b.t.w. stunning. It's fit together.

Damn...cool picture!
The "Opernturm" should be way taller, in my opinion! It would be a perfect skyscraper to have 300m or something like that ...this would look much better! But it it still very good.

Give Rotterdam 3 or 4 tower >200m and it beats Frankfurt easily! Paris' density is great. With the future projects and those in development, surely no 1 in Europe!
