Copenhagen: Crime

The Paris of the North

Copenhagen Crime

Copenhagen is generally a safe city although it does have increasing gang related crime in the Norrebro area. Money, mobile phones and credit cards should be kept in a safe place, although money belts are not necessary. Racism can also be a potential problem for people of African or Middle eastern descent and should be reported. If you are a victim of crime be sure to contact the police as soon as possible in order to ascertain a secure travel insurance claim. In an emergency, call 112 (police and emergency services). Ensure to carry personal ID such as a passport and the address of your Copenhagen accommodation.
