Nothing special. If Lille can participate we can also introduce a few other Dutch cities.

Honestly, I'm not seeing how The Hague has double the amount of votes of any other skylines in this thread.

Vilnius looks better and that's not even in the poll.

Because it has the best skyline I'm glad there is no Polish city in the poll.

Zuidas from Schiphol:

They can't build too high because of Schiphol, unfortunately.

Are there any height restrictions for buildings in Amsterdam?

Tallinn, Estonia

Cracks me up how ignorantly "western" the poll is.

Whatever..., you simply can't compare the beauty of the true, western europe, with some silly post-soviet wannabe-skylines. Period. And god please, don't let anyone add a Polish city, we've got no chances then. /sarcasm

On a serious note, Birmingham and The Hague look lovely. Voted for the first one.

Brussels has a lot of towers spread out over the whole city and has multiple core business areas.
So, there isn't really a compact skyline!

Here are some pics of the North station area.

This isn't the most massive building of the city, but by a few meters the highest!
