Bonn has become an excellent location for business companies and has positioned itself in the top section of commercial hubs in Germany. Behind Munich, Düsseldorf, Walldorf and Wolfsburg, Bonn is the most "valuable" city in Germany, measured in terms of the stock market price of the DAX companies and global players Deutsche Telekom and Deutsche Post DHL Group.
Bonn has performed well in the nation-wide city rankings for years. The strong economic performance is based on location factors which stand out in regional competition: sustained positive population growth, high purchasing power which is 12.3 percent above the national average, the above-average level of education of its population, its internationality and its excellent science environment – to mention only a few. Its high quality of life is to many companies an advantage in providing attractive living conditions to qualified staff.
