Today, around 75% of them live in Bayern (Bavaria), Baden-Württemberg, and Hessen.

What is the state of Rheinland Pfalz like? Is …

What is the state of Rheinland Pfalz like? Is it cheap to live there? Are there a lot of Muslims/refugees? Is it a safe place to be? Thanks! 🙂

Rheinland-Pfalz in Southwestern Germany has a lot of villages, smalltowns, countryside, farmland with vineyards, and rural areas. With about 4 million people, it‘s Germany‘s 7th-most populous state out of 12. Mainz with about 200,000 people is the capital and largest city, other cities include Ludwigshafen, , Koblenz, Trier, Kaiserslautern, and Worms. Around it are 4 German states — it also borders France, Luxembourg, and Belgium.

Significant foreign resident populations (as per Jan 2018, highest to lowest number) included people from Turkey, Poland, Syria, Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Afghanistan, Croatia, Russia, and the Kosovo.

41% of the population are officially Roman Catholic, 28% are officially Lutheran/Protestant, 31% of the population claims they are not religious, As in most of Germany, under 3% of the population is Muslim.

As most of Germany, it‘s a „safe“ place to be, especially compared to many other countries. The unemployment rate was 4% in late 2018, lower than the German average. „Cheap“ is a relative term, but yes, depending on exact location, cost of housing etc. would probably be lower than in larger cities.

Get ready to drink good wine, eat Saumagen und listen to Donald Trump and Helmut Kohl jokes. 😀 Trumps ancestors came from Kallstadt here and Helmut Kohl (former German Chancellor) liked to serve international guests Saumagen (pig’s stomach), a local specialty not everyone might consider a desirable food to eat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saumagen
