Munich’s economy and infrastructure

Munich’s economic strength is founded on several important pillars. The diverse economic structure, the wide range of growing industries and the successful composition of global players and SMBs offer substantial opportunities for success.

Laptops and pretzels

The Bavarian capital also has a highly-qualified workforce with an exceptional infrastructure. The high proportion of modern industries and services make Munich and its surroundings a magnet that attracts a growing number of people.

The city on the Isar impresses with its attractive geographical location and quality of life. With everything from high culture to Bavarian cuisine and innovative, alternative scenes, everyone can find something suited to his/her personal tastes.

Broad economic spectrum

Munich’s economy ranges from small craftsmen and the manufacturing sector to innovative services and high-growth sectors. Munich is at the heart of Germany’s high-tech industries.

In a competition between different European locations, the Bavarian capital is the leader in the sectors of IT- and communication technology, media, finance and life sciences.

Consequently, Munich’s trade fairs are the first choice of industries that play key roles in international economic development.

German frontrunner in technology

Munich is Germany’s undisputed technology leader. It is home to around 22,000 high-tech companies in the fields of electronics, telecommunications, aviation, and aerospace as well as electrical, mechanical, and automotive engineering.
