Bavaria: Munich is the German commuter capital

Fürth (dpa / lby) - Munich is by far the German commuter capital. Every day, up to 503,600 people travel to the state capital from other communities to work. Frankfurt and Hamburg are in second and third place with a good 445,000 and almost 427,000 commuters, respectively, as the State Statistical Office in Fürth announced on Tuesday.

In contrast to the previous calculations, the statistical offices of the 16 federal states counted commuting self-employed, civil servants and mini-jobbers for their new commuter atlas for the first time. These were missing in the earlier figures on the subject. With almost 192,000 commuters, Nuremberg takes second place in Bavaria and ninth nationwide.

In one respect, however, Nuremberg is even ahead of Munich: Almost half of all working people in Bavaria's second largest city live elsewhere, in Munich it is "only" 45 percent.

However, the Munich suburb of Unterföhring takes the top spot in Bavaria with a commuter rate of 94 percent. The television group ProSiebenSat.1 has its headquarters there and the insurer Allianz has its German headquarters. Among the major cities, Regensburg has a very high commuter rate of a good 61 percent. More than 96,000 people who do not live there work in the city on the Danube.

The high number of commuters has been an issue for politicians and authorities for years, one consequence of which is the high traffic load both on the streets and in public transport. However, the authorities have not measured how often people work from home. In this respect, the actual numbers are presumably somewhat lower.
