Wellington: New Zealand’s Capital City Ranked The Best Place To Live In The World

Deutsch Bank's most recent Liveable City Index has named New Zealand's cool little capital Wellington number one for the second year in a row!

The Deutsche Bank Liveable City Index, ranks world cities in categories such as safety in the city, health care, cost of living, pollution and climate. Wellington has topped the table against bigger and arguably better-known cities including Zurich (2nd), Copenhagen (3rd), Edinburgh (4th) and Vienna (5th).

Wellington is a city best experienced like a local and Wellington Mayor Justin Lester encourages visitors to ditch the maps and guides and get lost in this vibrant, compact city.

"Being the world's best place to live also makes Wellington one of the best places to visit. It has all the benefits of a big city – great restaurants, shopping, art, events, markets – but all in a compact area surrounded by a beautiful harbour on one side, and bush-clad hills on the other.

"On an international scale we are safe, affordable and we've got good transport connections. Most importantly we've got a city full of wonderful people, which makes being here a pleasure."
