When I was a little kid I saw a postcard from Malta.

Which major German cities have the most picturesque skylines? In the category of modern skylines I’d say Frankfurt and Düsseldorf. In the category of historic skylines my favourites are Cologne and Dresden. This is Dresden’s skyline with the Frauenkirche, Residenzschloss, Semperoper and the river Elbe.
