I agree. Or Liverpool for that matter. The Hague's got a decent skyline, but I don't understand why it's so far ahead of the other cities.
I would imagine there's a lot of biased voting with people voting for their own cities - Germans voting for Berlin, Belgians voting for Brussels etc.

Look at the Hague do you see a reason for it to be at top rank? if you look at The UK's cities and the rest you will see there all above the hague so why is it at the top>? Its utter crap

Why did Rotterdam not won the other voting? Why is Berlin not leader in his vote while FFM rocks the other vote?
There is only one german who votes for berlin. Many Germans vote for the hague.

The skylines in this vote are really close to each other, there is no skyline, which really dominates the others in shape and size and beauty. I think for many voters the whoole package of the hague is just a bit better then the other skylines. So many voters give their vote to the dutch city. Its true, that the advance of the hague is not a real snapshot how far the hague skyline is better than the rest. Its an unreal result of "just a bit better"

No it큦 in the same league as Manchester and Birmingham i.e. not very impressive at all. Liverpool, Berlin and Brussels are waaaay ahead.

I agree. Brussels is the most coherent, Liverpool the most esthetic and Berlin is the coolest.

The Hague has the strangest buildings though. Who knows, maybe someone actually likes that campy crayon tower?

Vienna looks awesome and so does Liverpool. As for the others, well, no offense but Brum, Manchester and Leeds are completely random and butt ugly.

Leeds looks just like another provincial town. The same goes up for Manchester.
Birmingham is slightly better than the ones above.
The skyline of Liverpool looks very nice.
Berlin is a great city, but the skyline sucks.
Brussels has only dull glass towers, very boring.
Milan is on the right way, but it isn't there yet.
Vienna looks awesome on the pics, but in real life this skyline sucks pretty much.

Any pics of Valencia?

Ramses, Leeds and Manchester are more of a city than "The hague" will ever be. Its an overrated city with nothing interesting on the skyline at all, as for vienna skyline it doesn't suck in real life you will find its the best one on here, as for what you said about brussels it has more going for it than "The hague"

Birmingham sits ona limestone ridge so it has the topography. It just really needs to get a few of the dozen odd 100m_ shiny gleaming towers built. Otherwise it's never going to improve asthetically from a distance. It does have the potential, but that's all it is right now until the council pulls its fingers out.





this is an old skyline composition of a few new buildings. Only thing different is there's alot to be added, none are actually going up at the moment and a few designs are different.
