Austria’s capital Vienna, known as The City of Music, is considered Europe’s cultural capital. Its history, economy and environment make it the most best city to work of the world according to Mercer’s latest annual survey.
Zurich offers a unique mixture of attractions from museums to nightlife, without forgetting its international fashion labels and designs. If the culture, fashion and partying aren’t enough to convince you, this city offers a wide range of outdoor activities such as hiking on Uetliberg mountain or bathing in its river and lakesides.
The Bavarian capital revels in contradictions: it is well known for sports (FC Bayern Munich), festivals (Oktoberfest), industry (BMW) and its history (medieval churches, dynastic palaces and historic theatres). It is a great city for expats: out of its slightly more than a million inhabitants, 23% are foreigners. So deservedly it is also one of the best cities to work in Europe.
Germany’s fashion capital doesn’t deceive: walking through certain sections of the city reminds us of Paris and its stores are always chic and stylish – and expensive –.
In Germany’s sixth city, fashion is perfectly combined with romanticism: Alstadt’s (Old Town) squares, streets and Gothic architecture satiate the most romantic – and fashionable – travellers.
Yet another German city, Frankfurt surprises tourists with its international environment: almost 1 out of 3 people living in Frankfurt do not hold a German passport. Frankfurt is a perfect destination for those of you who are willing to work in business: it is the largest financial centre on the continent and is home of the European Central Bank.
Geneva is a beautiful Swiss city situated surrounding the eponymous lake. Its most famous monument is Jet d’Eau (in the picture above) as it is the world’s tallest water fountain. The “city of peace” is home to the European headquarters of the United Nations and the International Red Cross Committee. Like Frankfurt, Geneva offers great opportunities to those interested in finance, as around a hundred foreign banks are based there.
Denmark’s capital is characterized by its promenades and waterfronts. It was awarded the European Green Capital Award for 2014 thanks to its initiatives on the environment. The city is the cultural, economic and governmental centre of Denmark, and one of the major financial centres in Northern Europe. It is definitely a student-friendly city with more than 94.000 students enrolled in its wide range of Universities and Institutions.
No ranking would be complete without Amsterdam; the Dutch capital is 8th on Mercer’s ranking. Constantly defying stereotypes, Amsterdam has lots to offer: from its international red district and drug-friendly coffee shops to its 17th century atmosphere that anyone can feel by strolling along it’s intimate streets and canals.
Set in the heart of Switzerland, the Swiss capital, considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is the gateway to the Alps. The medieval airs of this city with its fountains, sandstone facades, narrow streets and historic towers make it totally worth visiting – and living –. Despite being in cold Switzerland, Bern is great in summer as the River Aare is great for bathing (and swimming!!!) whilst enjoying views of the Houses of Parliament and the Botanical Gardens. Doesn’t it definitely sound like one of the best cities to work in Europe?
The last city on our ranking is another German gem: Berlin. The German capital is definitely worth visiting: it’s glamorous, urban, multicultural, modern and historic all at the same time. Berlin is inspiring, unpredictable, amusing and embracing, making everyone feel like they belong there. And let’s not forget, it’s a party paradise; the city that truly never sleeps.
