Among Germany’s five most auspicious cities, three are located in the eastern part of the country – Leipzig, Dresden and Berlin. Or so the outcome of the latest city ranking by the HWWI Hamburg Institute of International Economics and by the private bank Berenberg Bank suggests. The ranking compares the competition- and location-related factors of the country’s 30 largest cities. The last ranking dates back to 2015. Munich took the lead in this year’s City Ranking, followed by Leipzig, Frankfurt am Main, Dresden and Berlin. The city with the bleakest outlook is Gelsenkirchen.

Leipzig Shows Massive Economic and Demographic Momentum

Three indices are compiled for the purposes of the City Ranking that take the economic and demographic dynamic of the cities and the various locational factors into account. The results are then pooled into a comprehensive index. What stands out in this latest ranking is the outperformance of Leipzig. Being the largest city in Saxony, it placed first in the “trend index,” which traces the demographic trend, the gainful employment trend, and the productivity trend. Accordingly, Leipzig boast the greatest economic and demographic dynamic along with above-average competitiveness.

The ten cities with the brightest outlook – which, in addition to the aforementioned cities, include Cologne, Wiesbaden, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Düsseldorf – manifest “no material shortcomings, and have displayed a largely stable ranking performance over many years,” according to the analysis. The experts who compiled the HWWI/Berenberg City Ranking emphasized that the competitiveness of Germany depends essentially on the performance of the country’s cities. They found that the 30 largest of them are home to 23 percent of the German population, subject to an upward trend. Cities act as growth drivers for entire regions.

Major Cities Grow Faster than Others

The growing significance of the major cities is also highlighted by the latest survey the IW Economic Institute in Cologne published. It revealed that Germany’s population, rather than decline, may actually increase to 83.1 million by 2035 as a result of incoming migration and an elevated birth rate. This would be around one million more residents than the country had at the end of 2015. The demographic growth will probably be fastest in the major cities. Berlin, for one, is projected to increase by 14.5 percent to four million residents. Munich is expected to grow by 14.4 percent, and Hamburg by 9.1 percent.

Living in a Condominium is Far more Affordable than Renting a Flat
Owning your home outright remains considerable more attractive than renting it, as a new survey just reaffirmed. For one thing, tenants bear a greater cost burden. On the other hand, homeownership helps to build up capital, and is therefore an important mainstay of your retirement scheme. Especially for young households, buying property is a great way to start building capital because they can stretch their payments over a longer period

In a recent survey, the IW’s real estate expert, Prof. Michael Voigtländer, suggests that German municipalities are well advised to divest
Greater Berlin Still Has Land Reserves for 218,000 Flats
The housing development potential hidden in land reserves in Berlin proper and the greater Berlin area would suffice to create up to 218,000 new flats. The total volume breaks down into 153,000 flats in the German capital and 65,000 in the suburbs. This is the upshot of the latest housing market report for Berlin and its greater area (“Berlin und Umland”) that the IBB Investment Bank Berlin presented on 08
