safety has dramatically decreased the last 18 months. especialy women alone are at risk and get regularly sexually harassed. avoid u6. check if you are followed. dont sit in subways when they are almost empty. vienna is getting uncomfortable. collegues are forbidding their children to use certain public transportations or pass through parks. in the akh the number of victims being traeted because of attacks has risen fourfold. racism is a problem as well. strangely imposed mainly by immigrants from the balkans and ex soviet republics. also 2nd or 3rd generation gastarbeiter (turks and balkans) are getting more frustrated and agressive.
dont believe the good safe image vienna has.

Vienna is not as safe as it is meant out to be especially for teenagers who start going out. I have been in Vienna for one year only and have been mugged twice once at the Donau insel and once in the ninth district in a well lit road both times involving men in their twenties with knives or tazers. Always travel in a group! Also the use of marijuana has increased significantly over the past two years but unless you live in a shady area it shouldn't be too much if a problem.

Vienna is quite safe. I walk around late a night by myself and feel safe. Of course you should be cautious and use common sense, but there is no reason to be fearful.

The last ten years I never witnessed serious crime In Vienna. Only some drugusers hanging around.

Does 30% mean that the users providing these data have the fear of falling victim to a crime every 3rd time they leave the house?! This is utterly absurd. If been living in Vienna for 6 years and i'd say 0.3% would probably be too high. If you are interested in reliable data grab some translation-website and have a look at the official statistics:
