Why are all commentators on numbeo so afraid of Arabs? Nürnberg is a very nice city and safe at day and night if you don't have panic attacks just by looking at migrants.

Safe city by world standards. Crime has increased in the last 10 years. Mostly low-educated people with migrant background commit crimes. Safety is decreasing every year due to leftist forces that are taking over Germany and "welcome culture". Police is very professional and there is little corruption. Lots of vandalism and graffiti damage. Very save by day and somewhat unsafe by night. There are no particulary dangerous zones in the city, just the area around the main station can be a bit sketchy after sunset. In general the safety situation is alright, albeit slowly worseing every year.

I have lived in and worked in many large cities - London, Sao Paulo, Hamburg, Cologne, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Moscow etc. So looking at Nuremberg with an international viewpoint it is big enough to be a city with all the benefits but small enough to feel quite safe. It ist ethnic diverse, suprisingly mutlicultural for such a city of only 500.000 people. Nuremberg is the second largest city in Bavaria and as such does have its poorer areas, which often attrac people with similar social and cultural backgrounds. Compared to any larger city, this is no big deal and can be avoided if one is really concerned about meeting "other" cultures. If you want to meet only other Germany and eat only Bratwurst and Sauerkraut - this is the wrong place for you. If you like a cultural diverse city, with its challenges and oppertunities, this is relaxe place with lots to do.

Nuremberg has changed a lot. Nowadays it is the most unfriendly city I lived in with a big lack of culture and leisure activities for the inhabitants. The city now is crowded with Muslims that don't integrate and do not respect German culture. Muslims in other German cities seem more integrated. As well the crimes against life have risen dramatically over the last few years, as well as strange people seeming to crowd in this city over the last decades. There is a big radical islamic extremist community tolerated by the authorities for decades. Everybody there knows this, nobody talks about it
It is a nice place for tourism. However, if you should choose to live in Germany, choose another city.

I lived in Nürnberg for 15 years. That city was safer before but it is still safe compared to another european cities like Barcelona, London, Rome and even Berlin. Its safe to drive and walk in the city. People are helpful and there are no shady thieves. Just be careful walking in the night at Bahnhof (Main station) area.

I visited Nuremberg for some days, I visited the historical centre and I travelled around the city with car, It was a quiet and peaceful city, really safe. There aren't any muslims or africans.
