The United Kingdom’s capital, London, came in at number 39 and Edinburgh was next on the list at 46.

So if you’re thinking of moving abroad, the Mercer study suggests that Germany is the country with the most amount of cities featured in the top 10!

If you’re wondering why¬†Vienna is so special to nab the top spot; a key reason is the country’s housing. The government invests in high quality social housing, making the city an affordable place to settle. Low crime rates and cheap public transport are also a contributing factor.
