Vienna voted the most livable city in the world for the seventh time!

February 24, 2016

What thrills millions of visitors to Vienna is confirmed for the seventh time by a renowned, international city comparison: Vienna is number one in every way.

Each year, the international consulting firm Mercer carries out a study in order to assess the quality of life in 230 cities around the world. The results of the study in 2016 also gave Vienna top marks and made the Austrian federal capital the most livable city in the world for the seventh time in a row.

The survey compares the political, social and economic climate, medical care, education, and infrastructural conditions such as public transportation, power and water supply. 

It also takes into consideration recreational offers such as restaurants, theaters, cinemas, sports facilities, the availability of all kinds of consumer goods from food to cars, as well as environmental conditions - from green space to air quality.
