As if the sausages and the beer were not enough, this week's Local List has come up with ten (other) good reasons to move to and live in Germany.


From clubs for rabbit breeders to next-level playgrounds – and one cake in particular – there are plenty of fun reasons to move to Germany.

And in practical terms the German job market is strong and its working conditions good.

The much-prized apprenticeship scheme has helped keep youth unemployment down. In contrast to many other countries, vocational education is properly valued in Germany and manual professions are considered an equally valid career path - former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, began his career with a vocational apprenticeship.

Have a look at The Local's top ten list here and see if we can persuade you to make the move.
