These two Dutch cities rank in the top 10 for vegans in Europe

It’s good news for the meat-free Monday-ers. Not just one, but two cities in the Netherlands have claimed spots in the top 10 European cities for vegans.

Despite the Dutch affinity for deep-fried meat, the capital comes in at third place in Europe, with Utrecht sneaking in at eighth place.

This was according to a survey conducted by CIA Landlords, where the UK based insurance company compared the population size of European cities with the number of restaurants with vegan-friendly options. 🌿

Italy and Germany also vegan hotspots

Going Dutch isn’t the only option for vegan travellers. Italy and our neighbours Germany both clinch a few spots each on the list. Florence pinches the top position, Rome comes in at fifth place, and Bologna in ninth (vegan pizza, yes please!). Berlin and Munich take seventh and tenth place respectively.

Unsurprisingly, French cities didn’t fare well when it comes to vegan options. Marseille, Toulouse, Lyon, and Nantes all ended up near the bottom of the ranking. To be fair, it is hard to do a vegan beef bourguignon.

Top ten vegan cities

Wondering if your home country made it on the list? Here are the top ten cities ranked the best for vegans by CIA Landlords:

  1. Florence, Italy
  2. Dublin, Ireland
  3. Amsterdam, the Netherlands
  4. Galati, Romania
  5. Athens, Greece
  6. Rome, Italy
  7. Berlin, Germany
  8. Utrecht, the Netherlands
