Birmingham has some very nice towers. We've taken down over 150 tower blocks over the last 20 years.

Still some left but they are planned to be replaced. Stephenson tower for instance is due to be taken down and 2, 125m towers put up in its place. Birmingham aint perfect, but it isn't bad.

137m, 84m, 75m, 57m.

@KAZAN RESIDENT - We live in the Netherlands, not in Holland. And that's a realy bad picture to represent Amsterdam.

^Pathetic? Maybe a little bit smaller, but surely more quality.

Nice skyline of Birmingham. I especially like the electricity poles.

Most of the buildings have their own style, only a couple i would say arnt very nice. Its not a skyline filled full of faddy "iconic" buildings, but one or two more identifiable buildings wouldnt but harmful

70s actually but whatever. There are also two glass clad hotels, a concrete telecom tower a cylindrical apartment tower, an 80s pomo glass office tower and a shiny spun alluminium disc covered department store nestled at the of the skyline.
Its better than the majority of skylines in the poll, only Berlin comes close.

I can't believe that The Hague is winning this poll. It has some nice individual buildings (and I do mean some, certainly not all), but the skyine composition is awful. The setting is pretty damned ugly too.

My vote goes to Vienna.
