Safety in Berlin


I am planning to visit Germany in the middle of 2014 on a gap year holiday. I was wondering if anyone who has been there can give me advice on safety what I should to in order to stay safe in Berlin. I will be travelling alone as an 18 year old girl.

You should not have any concerns at all in Berlin. How long are you going to stay in Berlin? If long term, have a read through this recent discussion on neighbourhoods

You may also find this discussion from late last year of interest. tripadvisor.com.au/ShowTopic-g187323-i135-k5…

The OP was your age and travelled solo to Berlin. You may also enjoy some of the places she visited.

My 22yr old daughter spent 2 weeks solo in Berlin this time last year and loved it - met up with lots of other kids her age in the youth hostel where she stayed.

We travelled to Berlin in December and found it very safe to walk around. One of our tour guides said it was one of the safest cities in Europe, with very little violent crime. I think it is less safe to travel in Australia these days, sadly!
