Hamburg is a very diverse city and this diversity also will have an impact of your security feeling. The level of security depends a lot in which area of the city you stay. The district of St Pauli can be very sleazy in some parts, but most of this neighborhood is quite fun. To avoid(specially at night) is a street called Steindamm nearby the central station, because of junkies, agressive crackheads and street hookers. The underprivileged and rough districts like Billstedt,Kirchdorf-Süd, Osdorfer Born or Steilshoop are mostly in the suburbs, were never a tourist get lost and also the most Hamburg citizens never put a foot in it. So there is no need to worry, although you should take a critical look at the legendary story about the so called "wealthy" Hamburg. After Frankfurt the city of Hamburg has the largest income inequality in Germany and one of the highest poverty rate of children and pensioners among Germany.Anyway, Hamburg is besides my special remarks, not dangerous in the most inner city districts and pretty safe in the posh areas around the Alster-lake and in the western suburbs like Blankenese. You could probably leave the door unlocked in the wealthy areas( However dont try it)

Like #Ebru I am also from Hamburg and lived for the last 30 years in different parts of the city. Center and suburb, better and "worse" areas. And I must say I am quite surprised by the bad rating here. I have never experienced any crime in my live. And I also don't know anyone who did. People here call the police because their neighbours party gets to loud and want it to be stoped. That said, yes of course there are crimes in a big city like this. And particular issues seem to be breaking into houses while people are gone, bike thefts, and drug dealing in some city areas. Also in St.Pauli and its famous red-light district, where many people party and get drunk, some might get into fights or being taken advantage of. But generally that is nothing you have to worry too much about.

Tourists will most likely come to the center of the city. It is very safe during the day, and relatively safe at night.
There are certain areas in the east and the south, that i wouldn't recommend visiting at night. Muggings and violent crimes are not uncommon there.
Also be careful when visiting St. Pauli at night. Stay on the Reeperbahn and you should be fine.

I don't think that Hamburg is very safe. It is not safe to walk alone at night. Especially, if you are a women. Robbery cases are not so unique here.

I‘m from Hamburg, lived here all my life

Most crimes here are definitely drug and theft related, in my experience though Hamburg is a pretty safe city and the 50% crime statistic kinda feels pulled out of the ass lol

I don't know where did you get that (2,2××€) information. Most people I know in Hamburg do not make more than 8,5€ euro an hour. Salaries in Germany are quite low but the prices of everything as low too..

The net average monthly salaries in Germany in €2,256 (I'll guess 2015 numbers)
