General Safety

How safe is central Cologne late at night, around midnight? I am staying in hotel allegro near the Rhine. Is it safe to walk around the city centre areas back to my hotel?

I was there less than two years ago with my mother and aunt and we walked everywhere. Our hotel was along the Rhine also and we never encountered any problems or never felf nervous and we were three women so you should be fine.

We were in Cologne 2 weeks ago. I felt very safe and never saw any trouble when out at night. We ended up in a bar that was open until 6 am ( don't know where because we were lost at the time) and we never saw any drunks! We were approached a few times by beggars while we were waiting for trams though but they weren't aggressive.
