Five German cities among 30 most livable in the world: Economist Intelligence Unit

Vienna has been ranked as the most livable city in the world for the first time, according to the latest Economist Intelligence Unit global survey. Five German cities, including Frankfurt, have ranked in the top 30.

The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has ranked Frankfurt, Hamburg, Berlin, Munich and Düsseldorf in the top 30 of its latest ranking of global livability, which was released on Tuesday.

Frankfurt ranked the highest at 12th, with the EIU, part of UK news magazine The Economist, giving it a livability score of 96.0 out of 100. None of the German cities received a rating of lower than 93.0, which was the score Düsseldorf received, and all five were among the 15 best-ranked European cities.

The survey, which measures "challenges to lifestyle across 140 cities around the world," ranked Vienna the highest with a rating of 99.1. It marks the first time the Austrian capital has topped the list, displacing Melbourne, which topped the list for the last seven years.

Australia and Canada had the most cities in the top 10 — Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide for Australia and Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto for Canada. Japan also had multiple cities, Osaka and Tokyo, among the 10 best.

Copenhagen, which ranked ninth, was the only other European city in the top 10. - Read More
