Munich Crime

Munich has an extremely low crime rate and it is safe to walk through the city’s streets. Nevertheless, it is important that holidaymakers take sensible precautions and keep valuables out of sight. Women should also wear their handbags towards the front of their body, and it is recommended that any important documents such as passports or any cards or cash that is not required are kept in a hotel safe where possible, so this is worth asking for on arrival at your accommodation. Holidaymakers should be vigilant in crowded U-Bahn or S-Bahn carriages, or when walking through crowded areas such as the pedestrian zone. If visitors do witness a crime, or become a victim themselves, the police can be called on number 110.
