Estate agent Ottmar Heide said now eight in ten of his customers were leaving Germany and moving to Hungary because of the migrant crisis, and the potentially millions of non-Europeans who will move to Germany every year. The fact that there is already a large German speaking community around the lake, the country is Christian, property and cost of living is cheap, and there are no “migrants” are all reasons for people choosing to move there, claims the report.

It isn’t just Germans who are moving to Hungary to escape the migrant crisis. The Visegrad Post reports this week on the prevalence of native Belgians moving to Hungary, and for just the same reasons. Belgium sends per capita the most fighters to join the Islamic State, and is one of the most Islamised nations in Western Europe.

The Post reports between 2011 and 2015, the number of Belgian ex-pats living in Hungary registered with their national embassy increased from 463 to 900. It reports that better weather and freedom from fear of terror attack are other ‘pull factors’.
