    The list of cities with the highest standard of living is announced in Germany for the 12th time. And Munich proved out its leadership once again: this city has best living conditions, health service, low crime rate and high tourist activity.

    Munich is followed by Dresden where are well-developed social services and education and, for example, larger number of kindergartens than in any other big city. The crime rate there is slightly higher than in Munich and in addition – a well-developed culture and leisure activities. But in “realty” and “commerce” categories Dresden was not so successful.

    Frankfurt is third in the list thanks to a highest employment level: 72.4% of local residents have a job there. This city is notable for the fast-growing economy and broad options for business class. And Stuttgart in its turn attracts people with a good weather and numerous holidays.

    Hamburg is third year in a row fifth in the list. There is a low unemployment in this city but leisure and cultural rest opportunities are very limited. But maybe something is going to change for the better when Elbe Philharmonic Hall will be finally opened.

    Dusseldorf is sixth in the list with a great transport system but the worst education service. The top ten is completed by Leipzig, Cologne, Berlin and Hannover respectively.
