Number one city in Europe. Berlin is the place to be
Berlin is the capital and the largest city of Germany, as well as one of its 16 constituent states. With a steadily growing population of approximately 5.5 million, Berlin is the second most populous city proper in the European Union behind London and the first big urban area in the European Union.
Berlin has been named the #1 City in Europe for Real Estate Investment by PWC (Emerging Trends in Real Estate, Europe 2016) for the 3rd time in a row and #2 World City for Quality of Life by Monocle Magazine (2016 Quality of Life Index). According to Inspiration Group, Berlin is the place to be.
Berlin attracts 50,000 new residents per year, resulting in vacancy rates near zero and a housing deficit of 25,000 units per year. Berlin is home to over 300,000 students attending some of Germany’s best universities, creating a large talent pool for the established research centres and new tech startups.
