A German government institute has published a map of where the population is increasing and decreasing in Europe.

I'm not too surprised that the heaviest cluster of dark blue is in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Compared to the Upper Rhine-Neckar-Main region where I lived, I was surprised at just how sparsely populated the northeast of Germany is (Berlin being the one big exception).

We lived in Berlin and love that city. Some people, like us, move about living in different cities.
