The cost of living in Munich

Munich is a popular city with a high quality of life, but it can be expensive. How much does it cost to rent an apartment? What do you pay for a taxi? And how about regular expenses for electricity, gas and water?

Businesspeople and employees also need to know the tax and municipal rates that apply in the city.

These and other questions are answered in the two information leaflets below. They are regularly updated by the Department of Labor and Economic Development at the City of Munich.

In the Mercer Cost of Living Rankings 2018  Munich was in 57th place among 209 cities worldwide.
