I like Frankfurt! London needs density.

A nice (old) video of the Bavaria City Racing 2007 in Rotterdam with nice views



I didn't went last year but I want to go this year! It must be amazing!

This is also funny, Turkey won against Croatia with the soccer EC, the turkish people in Rotterdam went crazy

Frankfurt, Paris (La Defence) then London or Rotterdam (thats if you arent including Liverpool - if you are it to me is more aesthetically pleasing than either of London' skylines although these will only get better with planned building but then there are 4 waterfront towers with or under planning in Liverpool so....................)
Frankfurt looks great from every picture Ive seen but never been so thats all i can say
Paris (la Defence) looks great from any angle and will get even better with the new towers. Apart from under the grand arch for the views though, a very boring and slightly deserted environment to be in, especiaslly out of character with the bustle of Paris, but then this is just skylines I suppose.
London (city) composition is good and amazing historic mix adds to it, just not enough there yet but that is coming
London (Canary Wharf) Looks good from some angles but from others, the buildings are far too similar in height and mass - needs more variation but i understand this is planned so i look foreward to seeing the result
Rotterdam looks very good from the distant shots people are showing, close up - not sure and never been so purely going off pictures
Liverpool - although the buildings at present arent the tallest, the composition is great from a distance, it;s great close up, has a great context on waterfront, nice mix of building age and type and like the city of london, interesting to walk around because of this

Paris is nice, simple forms + density make very nice skylines. Just some 2 or 3 200-300m scrapers and it will easily dethrone Frankfurt

(dunno if it was in this thread before )
