WTF? Why there are still people who say Germans are Nazis if they show any sign of patriotic spirit? Is it a crime if we think Frankfurt is the worlds best? We are in the modern age now for goodness sake. Not in WWII.

People are just jealous that Germany is a great nation! Long live the Germans!

This is for all the Germans and all non Germans alike who believe about change! Germany ≠ Nazi!

Frankfurt's skyline does it for me.
And Tigris, you're right. I'm not German, but I hate it how people still call Germans Nazis. We have a lot of German friends, they are nice people. Hitler and his followers were Nazis, not the German population.

And Hitler wasn't even a German, so really the Austrians are the 'real nazis'

But this thread isn't about Nazis (at least it doesn't look like that) so let's rather discuss about the skylines


Amazing that Frankfurt is so highly ranked. It is indeed one of the most beautiful skylines in the world.

Has nothing to do with patriotism. I'm German by birth, and Frankfurt wouldn't even crack my top-20 skylines. Then again, "most beautiful skyline" is a completely subjective assertation.

It will take some time, but in the end, you'll all have to admit that Frankfurt has a far better skyline than HK

What's funny is that Frankfurt is beating Chicago

I wonder if we'll make the newspaper "Renowned architecture forum users rate Frankfurt 3rd best skyline in the world"

LOL! Frankfurt even beat Chicago, SFC, Toronto and even Sydney! Hey! where is Moscow? I guess it's still early to say because it's still under construction. I guess I have to wait til next year or two.
