Not only the Mercer Institute, but also the Economist Intelligence Unit awards Austria's capital the award for the highest quality of life – the second time in a row.
The saying: "I sure won’t let them sugarcoat my Vienna" („Ich lass mir mein Wien sicher nicht schönreden“) is a typical Viennese respond to the award for the most liveable city in the world. By now, the Viennese should feel rightfully honored, after all, the Economist is the second internationally renowned institution that places the Austrian capital at the top of their Ranking for quality of life. The ranking compares 140 major cities around the world and evaluates them in 5 categories and 30 different values: security, infrastructure, cultural and educational services, health care and environmental quality – only those who can convince in all these categories have the opportunity to enter the top ten.
At 99.1 percent, Vienna is impressively close to the ideal of 100 points - just ahead of Melbourne and Osaka. However, Europe is very rarely in the top 10, only the Danish capital Copenhagen has managed a higher position in the ranking. London and Paris, for example, slipped a good bit further down the rankings because of higher crime rates and weaker infrastructure.
While Vienna was able to claim the top ranking for the ninth time in the famous Mercer study, the Economist's award "only" went to Austria for the second time in a row. However, the chances are good that Vienna will achieve the trifecta. But: Let’s wait and drink melange.
