How is crime?

Post New Topic

I left Germany in 2015 but was there to witness the Syrian migrant influx. I have seen that shortly thereafter there was a rise in violent crime in Germany. Getting ready to return to Germany, I am wondering what the situation is now, and what parts of Germany are negative affected. Skipping the "politically correct" approach, can anyone give me an honest, knowledgable answer? Thanks.

Crime has decreased in recent years. The crime rate of migrants is at or below that of Germans, other than the crime some of them commit of entering the country illegally. See here, its in English:

Violence seems mostly to have been committed against migrants by far-right groups, NOT by migrants on Germans.

The crime rate in Germany is far below that of the US.

It is difficult to tell. The government likes to stick to a narrative that crime is dropping.

However, studies indicate that the Dunkefeld is so high for certain types of crime that the police only know about a tiny proportion of cases.

A survey conducted by the state police in Lower Saxony last year, in which members of the public were asked if they had been a victim of crime during the year, indicated that 93 percent of sexual offences are not reported and only 12 percent of hate crimes are reported.

Meanwhile, a study from the late 1990s suggests that every second murder in Germany is never discovered, because the official postmortem wrongly ascribed it to natural causes.

Being a German national I can say that with resonable behaviour in all parts of the country you can live without worrying too much. It is very similar than North America.
There are areas with more problems than others but in general it s very safe.
Home invasions, homicides, rapes, etc. are not happening frequently. Most homicides are family or relationship related.
There is petty crime going on in the big cities like bike thefts.
It is a good country with rather free healthcare but high taxation.
