The question of personal safety is often one of the first to pop up in the minds of expats-to-be. This is of course not too surprising – after all, you are going to move to a country you might not be familiar with in detail, or know only from short trips.
When it comes to expat life in Germany, you can rest assured that you will probably not experience any problems or witness (or even be the victim of) any crime. Obviously, every city and every neighborhood are different, and broad generalizations may not reflect your personal experience or your feelings of safety. However, as a whole, Germany is a country with a low crime rate, and an even lower one if you are only looking at violent crimes.
