Yeah, Montreal is like a cross between a European city and a North American city.

When I think about protestant stereotypes, I don't necessary see them as being more progressive.
Munich strikes me as the most relaxed of the big German cities. Berlin is also relaxed to some degree but in a different way. Of all the cities in Germany ironically it was Munich that reminded most of Montreal - especially in the summertime it's quite festive with a nice terrasse culture.

yeah that's probably why they are compared to in the first place. I think Germans are very outdoor enthusiasts, and Munich is actually very green. I really enjoy both cities as they are very big and varied, yet with a lot of open space. I kinda miss that here since we don't have much nature to speak of and the population density is quite a bit denser than either place.

They are both fun places to visit.

Munich. In a heartbeat.

Montreal could be at that level, again I haven't spent very much time there, and it does seem to be a very dynamic destination, also. The fact it's winning (or even close) in a poll against a place like Munich, really shows how outstanding it is perceived to be.
