I died in Copenhagen after a building fell on me while I was being mugged by 33 men with chainsaws for my rolex. I barely survived but a plane crashed and half my body was gone. Then the muggers dragged me to the hospital which exploded killing them and sending me flying onto the train tracks where I died after being run over by a train. trust me, do not bring rolex or you die.

Copenaghen is very safe, the problem is because of immigrants, you need to just stay away from blacks and muslims, and stay away from metro/subway and you'll be safe.

the stats tell me safe, the comments tell me unsafe, I am now unsure of what to do with my life

My car just got stolen in a highly populated area, I one seems to have seen a thing.
Some one I know was attacked for a Rolex.
Other people have just had their bike plucked off the street.
Just because there are more sophisticated crimes for higher ticket items happening here (usually using first world technology) doesn’t mean mean the crime rate is lower....

Sorry, pickpocketing does not happen in many East Asian cities. You guys are just used to bad crime rate.

africans and muslims are ruining Europe. I hope that really soon those irregular immigrants will pay the damage they're doing.

Copenhagen is not safer than Lagos, one of the most criminal and unsafe plages I have vistited.

Such bullshit comments here. Pickpocketing etc happens in every city, don't be a dumbass and watch your stuff in public.

An incident which happened to my parents. They were about to board a Train. Some people came and snatched my mother’s bag and pickpocketed my father. Everything was stolen.
Again in 2015 my uncle and aunt were visiting the city centre when a few persons of mongoloid origin shouted bird shit bird shit and sprayed something on them . While my uncle was distracted with such things, one of them put his hands on his back pocket when my uncle realised and kicked that person and ran to the coach. Luckily they could save themselves
Is that city safe ?

Try to compare Copenhagen to anywhere around the world - it has the lowest crime rate!!! I live here and never felt unsafe! Things can happen anywhere... but the chance are very small here. It is beautiful and safe here :)

4 white guys from a gang followed me on the street, I was on my way home from a friends party. Got to train station, they pull me down an alley. An Elderly couple walked by, saw that I was getting mugged, decided to interfere. Muggers lost their nerve and ran away with nothing but my phone, and I got to spend the night at a police station.

Worst experience ever.

Just travelled to Copenhagen and stayed in Norrebro with a 4 year old and a 2 year old. At no point did we feel threatened or in any danger. Felt silvery safe in this beautiful city.

Its the same pattern over and over again , perfectly low crime rates made higher by immigrant young men . They should never have been brought in . I blame big corporations for this .

My son visited Copenhagen for the New Year 2016/17 unfortunately he was mugged and beaten for his Rolex watch by 3 men of African decent. He had 10 stitches to his face and head. This doesn't sound like a safe place to me? When he was in the hospital everyone in there had the same opinion of the City.
