Vienna Ranked as Greenest City in the World – and Metropolitans Show Why

Our readers share some of their favorite pictures of springtime Vienna.

Vienna was listed as the “greenest city in the world” in The World’s 10 Greenest Cities 2020 ranking, ahead of European peers like Munich, Berlin, and Madrid. More than 100 big cities worldwide were compared. Based on criteria such as the proportion of parks and public green spaces, air quality, public transport, and markets, Vienna came out on top.

When we shared this news on social media, our readers shared their own pictures of Green Vienna, wherever they live and walk.

Here are some of the most beautiful pictures shared by our Metropolitans:
