How safe is Austria?
You may be wondering about safety. In general people perceive their personal safety situation in Austria as very safe. People rate the risk of falling victim to petty crime (such as pickpocketing or minor theft) as very low.

They consider the chance of being the victim of violent crime (including mugging) very low.

And, they rate confidence in the police force and related local authorities as very high.

How safe is Austria for women?
Female expats rated the safety situation in Austria as very safe. This is based on the feedback of expat women living in Austria (rather than actual crime statistics). So obviously this can be highly subjective and depends on factors such as where people live.
