Monocle magazine ranked 25 world cities for their quality of life. Munich - along with Berlin - came in third. The Bavarian state capital got high marks for its unique way of life and for being close to nature.
The annual ranking put out by the British magazine Monocle also placed Dusseldorf in the top 20. Tokyo came in second. No US city made the top 25, with picturesque Vancouver the only North American city in the mix.
Although Tokyo topped the list, Monocle magazine's editor-in-chief Tyler Brûlé tells DW why German cities like Berlin and Munich made the annual Quality of Life Survey global ranking from 2017.
Vienna remains the city with the highest quality of life in the world. In the annual ranking of the consulting firm Mercer, the Austrian capital ranks first ahead of the Swiss city of Zurich. Munich is in third place.
