Germany's largest tech and innovation hub

Munich

In recent years Munich has repeatedly ranked highly in quality of life surveys

In addition to its proximity to the Alps, the vibrant and beautiful city of Munich offers a lively café and restaurant scene, an abundance of public space and parks as well as many cultural attractions; it’s little wonder why Munich regularly scores highly in quality of life polls.

With global organisations drawn to Munich’s financial security and growth prospects, the “Munich Mix” is one of Europe's most dynamic and diverse business regions. The city attracts companies of all shapes, sizes and industries, with the region being a prominent hub for organisations within the automotive, manufacturing, TMT, life sciences, green technology, creative, IT, software and communication industries.

Furthermore, Munich has the largest tech and innovation hub in Germany. High-tech companies rely on patent protection, and technology businesses and start-ups within the city benefit from Munich being the patent capital of Europe, with the headquarters of the European Patent Office (EPO) as well as associated courts, attorneys and service providers all located in the region.
