It’s definitely not. [Look at Frankfurt,](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfurt#/media/File:Frankfurt_collage.jpg) [Paris’ La Defense,](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_D%C3%A9fense#/media/File:Paris_La_D%C3%A9fense_seen_from_Tour_Saint_Jacques_2013-08.JPG) or [Rotterdam](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotterdam#/media/File:Erasmusbrug_seen_from_Euromast.jpg) to name a few.
Europeans don’t generally destroy the older, historic buildings in the city centers to build new ones. In the examples above, Frankfurt and Rotterdam were destroyed in WW2 to the point where they just rebuilt them modern-style, and Paris’ La Defense is actually more of a suburb. That being said, from personal taste, I’d take [Cologne’s skyline](https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3581/3392594688_f8cf24f7dd_o.jpg), or [Munich’s](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Englischer_Garten_from_Monopteros.JPG), or [Dresden’s](http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2011/350/e/9/dresden_skyline_by_pingallery-d4j8rt4.jpg) over a generic cluster of skyscrapers any day.
Edit: [Erfurt was actually my favorite, so I’ll share this one too.](http://cdn.c.photoshelter.com/img-get2/I0000z6jWt8TrBII/fit=1000×750/Panorama-of-Erfurt-at-night.jpg)
