Is Copenhagen Safe?
Who would’ve thought, eh?
Full of history, both recent and medieval, it has an eclectic array of museums and galleries just like most European capitals.
It’s also home to the Danish royal family and a few important historic buildings including the Rosenborg Castle.
Copenhagen is a true smart city in every way possible.
The big question, however, is whether Copenhagen is as safe as visitors make it out to be.
How does it fair not only compared to Nordic neighbors, but compared to fellow European countries or even the world stage? Let’s find out.
How Safe is Copenhagen?
When it comes to safety, Copenhagen is considered by many to be the very best. For a European capital, the population is very low.
Less than 800,000 people live here, so when you compare with the likes of London, the lack of crime speaks for itself.
From common sense alone, a traveller can deduce that you’re less likely to be a victim of crime in a city that has 800k people compared to ten million.
There’s hardly a crime rate, and there’s no natural phenomena that an American insurance company would consider an “act of God.” There’s low risk everything: low risk of mugging, terrorism, scams, petty crime.
If you find yourself a victim of crime here, consider it winning the lottery.
