The Austrian capital has topped the Mercer Quality of Life Index for the last 10 years.

As always European cities dominate. Three are from Switzerland: In addition to Zurich, Basel and Geneva make the cut. Another three are from Germany: Munich, Dusseldorf and Frankfurt.

Outside Europe there are only two in the top ten: Vancouver in Canada and Auckland in New Zealand.

There are no cities from the UK or the US on the list.
