```Here is a version similar to Rui's, but using ave() and logical
indexing to simplify a bit:

> DF4[with(DF4, ave(as.numeric(var), city, FUN = function(x)length(unique(x))) ==1), ]

city wk var
4  city2  1   x
5  city2  2   x
6  city2  3   x
7  city2  4   x
8  city3  1   x
9  city3  2   x
10 city3  3   x
11 city3  4   x
16 city5  3   -
17 city5  4   -

Cheers,
Bert
