Why Munich is One of the Best Cities to Live In!

Munich is one of the best places in the world to live in. It ranks as 2nd in The Telegraph's list of "The World's Most Livable Cities 2019" and comes in 3rd in Mercer’s 21st annual Quality of Living survey ranking the cities with the best quality of living in the world. Munich has a presitigous reputation for its abundance of outstanding museums, exceptional education system and buzzing economy.

A cosmopolitan city situated in the heart of Bavaria, Munich strikes the perfect balance between a city that is modern and fun yet established enough that it runs like a well-oiled machine. Munich is a city that embodies a lively and international “vibe”, exhibiting a unique blend of deep-rooted tradition with all the trappings of a global, modern city. The city is just under an hour away from the Alps, granting easy access for those looking to venture to the countryside, lakes and rivers to enjoy hobbies such as hiking, skiing, cycling and sailing all year round. The city also has a very easy-going demeanour that is coupled with a vibrant social buzz, making it unquestionably well suited to young professionals. The ability to have a bit of fun are endless due in large part to the spirited (and traditional) beer garden culture and dynamic nightlife network scattered throughout the city – a prime example of the great fun to be had is the famous Oktoberfest festival that takes place in Munich in September and October each year!

Munich is firmly established as a thriving global centre for Life Sciences, boasting a strong dedication to innovation in scientific research, access to a skilled labour force, major biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical production companies. Munich also benefits from the presence of a plethora of scientific research institutions, including two worldwide high-ranked universities. With Munich being the financial centre of Germany, employees working in the city also fetch an average of €10,000 more than those employees working in the country’s capital, Berlin.  The city’s unemployment rate is also at an enviable 4%!

With several Life Science companies relocating their European headquarters to the DACH (Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Germany) region as a result of Brexit, Munich has also come to be labelled as “one of Germany’s leading hubs for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry”.
