Vienna is once again the most livable city in the ranking compiled by the British group The Economist on 23 June.
After the lifting of coronavirus restrictions, Frankfurt am Main also entered the top 10, finishing in 7th place. Hamburg placed 16th and Düsseldorf 22nd. At the same time, it is noted that three German cities improved their positions by about 30 points each.
In the past year, the quality of life in European metropolitan areas has declined significantly due to the coronavirus crisis. First place was then taken in isolated New Zealand by Auckland. After the lifting of coronavirus restrictions in 2022, the metropolitan areas of New Zealand, Australia and China lost their places in the ranking to other cities.
The “well-vaccinated” cities of Europe and Canada again took the first positions. Vienna is followed by Copenhagen, Zurich, Calgary, Vancouver and Geneva. After Frankfurt, the top ten also includes Toronto and Amsterdam, as well as Osaka and Melbourne.
