“Ein Prosit, ein Prosit der GemÃ¼tlichkeit”.
Munich is the best city in the world to live in.
A winning combination of investment in infrastructure, high-quality housing, low crime, liberal politics, strong media and general feeling of GemÃ¼tlichkeit make it a city that should inspire others. (Global Culture – Most liveable cities)
GemÃ¼tlichkeit is a German abstract noun whose closest English equivalent is Cosiness. However, rather than basically just describing a place as not too large, well-heated and nicely furnished (a cosy room, a cosy flat), GemÃ¼tlichkeit connotes, much more than cosiness, the notion of belonging, social acceptance, cheerfulness, the absence of anything hectic and the spending of quality time in a place as described above
“Abandon all burden, ye who enter here.”
