When broken down to the number of crimes per 100,000 inhabitants, Frankfurt am Main rates as the most dangerous city in Germany with 16,292 crimes per 100,000 people. Its high ranking was put down to its red light district and the large airport. Cologne was second in the list followed by Berlin and Düsseldorf.
Leipzig’s culture has developed a lot since then and continues to grow today. All this mixture of History, Literature, Music and an University city, makes Leipzig an incredible place to visit – I loved it! If you are in Berlin, it is worth visiting there, even if its just for a day; it is a short and cheap trip .
I have been to both, and while Leipzig is has its architectural delights in such buildings as the Altes Rathaus and the Opernhaus, Dresden is hands down the more beautiful city of the two for me. The centre has been meticulously reconstructed from the ruins of WWII. Its position on the River Elbe is beautiful.
The rate of violent crime is low and most areas of Prague are safe to walk around even after dark. Be careful on Wenceslas Square. It is usually packed with tourists and the crowds make things easy for pickpockets. There have also been cases of trusting “love-seekers” being robbed of all their money at night .
Budapest is a significantly larger city than Prague with roughly 1.7 million inhabitants over 1.2 million. Prague feels like a very compact city where most important sights are within a very short distance. The winner of this category is Prague , because all its beautiful sights are so easily accessible.
Prague is very walkable . If you dropped from the sky and landed in Old Time Square you would be in a good position to walk everywhere interesting within 30 minutes. The city sits in a valley split in half by a river and surrounded by rolling hills. The encircling hills forced compactness on the city builders.
