I've lived in Bremen for 10 years and feel it is a safe place to live. I've had a couple of bicycles stolen but apart from that no other problems. Of course like all large cities there are some places you should be careful but there are far more really nice places.

I was educated in Germany, been visiting for 35 years and owned a home in Bremen for the past 7. I always was cautious in certain areas such as the harbour district, train station and known drug areas, especially at night. I felt threatened several time in the past and once had a motor vehicle stolen. that was then. Now... I have had my home broken into at twice, once in broad daylight, once at night when in the home! My computer was stolen right out of my hand in a public place. My wife does not feel safe sleeping alone at home. My observation is that these crimes were a direct result of immigrant criminals from the Middle East and Eastern Europe and drug related crime. The police have all but admitted to me that they are powerless, criminals caught for crimes of property are out on the street again without restrictions or serious penalties. We have spent a significant amount of our retirement savings securing our home. We no longer visit several favorite locations in the City. Crime has definitely altered our view of Bremen and life style. Be safe, Be aware, Be prepared.

Watch out for those soccer riots. I came out of the train station one evening just in time to witness the Hamburg and Bremen soccer fans break out into a five minute riot. The police started busting heads and it was over as quick as it started. There are some seriously werder bremen soccer hools. they wear green white and black. They hate hamburg so dont say anything about that and try not to wear extremly blue stuff

I live in bremen and lots of people come ti the ciry to visit because its a small town with all cultures, hanseatic lufestyle and you can akways have a good party. You should visit steintor/viertel thats were the sceneis placed. Directly at the mainstation. Are located about 15 nice clubs bars and discothecs. Yoz should visut the 1 euro bar to start your party.but still be carfull about your selves.and bettee dont let girls go outside alone at night :)

..Middle Eastern crime clans have become a major player in the underworld of Germany since the mass emigration of large Middle Eastern families, also called GroƟfamilie. Especially in cities such as Berlin, Hamburg and BREMEN Middle Eastern clans are highly active in the trafficking of heroin as well as being involved in the bouncer-scene.[2] Middle Eastern crime clans come from different backgrounds, but the most numerous of them are the Mhallami clans such as the Al-Zein Clan and the Miri clan among others(...) source Wikipedia
they affect life mafia structures and mighty even act organized so you dont notice :D
