Ranking: Germans prefer to emigrate to these European countries

Many Germans are real Europeans even when they live. At the beginning of 2020, the statistics authority Eurostat counted almost 1.1 million German citizens living in other European countries. This applied to almost every 76th German. A look at the development of the past few years shows: Many a country of longing from the past has fallen out of favor with the Germans. Other regions, on the other hand, attract more and more German citizens year after year – also thanks to their spatial or cultural proximity. Around half of the emigrants come from just two European countries.
