In general Gothenburg is a safe city.

However, there is quite a lot of car break-ins. When talking to my friends here, there are at least 5 of my friends that have had car break-ins in the past few years. I consider these numbers quite absurd. Happened at different locations throughout the city centre.

During daylight if you stick to the crowded streets/avenues/places you will be fine. However avoid getting out at night, during night time african and arab gangs are everywhere.

Its just as safe as any other European city of similar size. Don’t believe the lies, it’s not 1980s New York. But as always you should be a little cautious in public

Honestly pretty chill if you act normal. But be careful of: Biskopsgården (especially the south side of it), Tynnered, Backa, Hjällbo, Hammarkullen, Lövgärdet, Bergsjön and Gårdsten.
