According to the report published by InterNations, in the Quality of Life Index, Germany ranks ninth overall, owing to its transport infrastructure, safety, and healthcare. The obvious drawback is the German climate, with over one-third of expats (36%) feeling dissatisfied with the weather, compared to 22% globally. However, the natural environment finds favor with 89% of the respondents.
The report states that around nine out of ten expats (92%) are satisfied with the transport infrastructure, and another 91% rate the travel opportunities positively. Around nine out of ten are happy with personal safety and peacefulness (90% and 88%, respectively), as well as Germany’s long-term political stability (86%). Those statistics are convincing enough for one in three expats to plan to stay in Germany for the rest of their life.
