High parking fees and poor cycle paths are causing displeasure, yet mobility in German cities is predominantly rated positively in an ADAC survey. A city in Saxony is at the top of the list.

In a nationwide comparison of major cities regarding satisfaction with mobility, the Saxon state capital of Dresden came out on top. It was followed at some distance by Leipzig, Munich and Nuremberg, as the automobile club ADAC announced on Tuesday. Drivers as well as users of public transport, cyclists and pedestrians were surveyed for the city ranking. The survey looked at 15 major cities with more than 500,000 inhabitants.

According to the ADAC survey, residents and commuters in 13 of these 15 cities are "generally satisfied" with public transport. The exceptions are Duisburg and Cologne. Good marks were given in particular for the density of stops, short distances when changing trains and signage at stations.

Cyclists and pedestrians are also largely satisfied with mobility - only car drivers are largely dissatisfied. Those who were motorized in the cities criticized above all high parking fees in the city centers and complained that e-scooter drivers and cyclists did not obey the traffic rules.

Compared to the last ADAC Mobility Monitor from 2017, however, satisfaction has declined noticeably in most cities, the ADAC reported. The exceptions were Berlin, where the satisfaction index remained the same, and Dresden, where the value only fell slightly.

For the "Mobil in der Stadt" study, ADAC surveyed more than 9,000 public transport customers, pedestrians, cyclists and car drivers. At least 600 interviews were conducted in each of the 15 cities.
