Berlin 2011 in the TOP 5 most popular locations in Europe

In the Cushman & Wakefield annual Cities Monitoring Report 2011 Berlin now ranks among the five favorite business locations in Europe:

2011 2010 1990
1. London 1 1
2. Paris 2 2
3. Frankfurt 3 3
4. Amsterdam 6 5
5. Berlin 7 15

The third German city among the top 10 is Munich, which remained in 9th place, but Düsseldorf's rank dropped from 10th down to 14th. The rise of Berlin is particularly interesting looking at the longer term development starting from 1990. Berlin got bonus points particularly for its immense cultural offerings and its universities, combined with its tenant-friendly housing market.

The main expansion goal within Europe remains Moscow. The 501 largest companies in Europe were interviewed for this annually compiled report. 

The Berlin Residential Property Market has great opportunities but appears complex to the outsider. Knowledge of the local markets is important and independent advice is vital for Residential Property Investment in Berlin. We also recommend the Berlin Housing Market Report 2011 which can be downloaded from this Blog by following the link above.
