I refuse to accept Essen as a skyline city. Nothing more than a high rise and bunch of ugly office blocks. Sorry. Don't even want to start with the rest of Germany. Some scattered highrises at best.

Barcelona and Madrid also have no real skylines. Nothing but a few skyscrapers, that's it. When you visit Barcelona you never get the feel of a true skyline. You only see here and there individual towers. That's not a skyline.

Of course you can take a photo from a particular angle to make it look dense but in most cases it has nothing to do with reality.

London, Paris, Frankfurt, Rotterdam, Moscow (can inlclude Yekaterinburg), Istanbul, and Warsaw are the only real European skyline cities.

no, this is not a skyline; a couple of spared skyscrapers, yes... :crazy:





the same as Madrid, who can call this a skyline? :poke:





Whatever...

Well, that's just your personal opinion. Aha so Benidorm also hasn't got a "real" skyline , don't it? (it's not maybe the best "quality" but here we are talking about skylines and skyscrapers, not about how beautiful they are, but that's another personal opinion, as I know many people who like them and I also like most of them. Specially buildings like Torre Lugano).


Whatever... I won't make an internet battle with anyone. If that's your opinion.. Ok! :cheers:

Munich has 6 skyscrapers (100m) ;)
True, I did forget that. The BMW building is also a skyscraper, and the HVB-Tower doesn't appear to be but it has 120m! :lol:

Anyways Munich is very beautiful, I've been there for 5 times at the moment (I will be back in the next month), the city center has Marienplatz and all the surrounding area which is sooo beautiful, it's very cultural and historical and it's architectural clashes between gothic, classic architecture and the modernity of Germany are amazing. Konigsplatz is also tremendous, Munich is a city to enjoy from a street view, it doesn't need any skyline in my opinion. :eek:kay:
