These European countries are most popular with German emigrants

For many Germans, Europe is not just an ideal home. You use the freedom of establishment and have your residence in another state on the continent. Often love or better job prospects are the reason for the move. Retirees are encouraged to emigrate by the lower cost of living and good weather. The travel restrictions in the Corona crisis often hit these Germans particularly hard. They are either cut off from their families for an indefinite period of time or have often returned to their original homeland due to the unsafe situation.

Around 1.2 million Germans lived in other European countries in 2019, as the Federal Statistical Office announced on Europe Day in May. You show clear preferences when choosing your new home country. Half of them were spread across just three countries. Every fourth expat German has decided on the leader in the ranking.
