Many Germans want to get out of the big cities

Berlin - More and more Germans no longer want to live in big cities. Almost half of Berliners stated that they wanted to leave the capital and move to more rural areas, according to a survey by the rbb consumer magazine Super-Markt.

According to this, especially young women and couples with small children want to turn their backs on the metropolis on the Spree. Around 41 percent of those questioned justified their wish with a feeling of "lack of security". The high rental prices as well as the noise and hectic pace also played a role for the majority.

North Rhine-Westphalia has more people moving out than people moving in
The trend towards moving out of the cities is also evident in North Rhine-Westphalia . In 2020, for the first time in years, more people left the big cities of the state than people moved in, as the ARD reported. Around 302,139 of the residents there decided to move to a new place of residence last year.

For the first time in nine years, the city population did not grow nationwide in 2020. With a migration deficit of around 110,000 people, district-free cities recorded the highest loss of population due to domestic relocations since 2011.
