About Landscape

Germany Security Overview

Overall, the threat of violent crime in Germany is low. Foreign nationals and expatriates are rarely targeted by criminals; however, there have been reports of racially motivated harassment and assaults.

The threat of terrorism is medium in Germany. The German Interior Ministry maintains heightened security measures, despite having no official threat scale. Foreign governments have issued warnings regarding terror threats in the country.

Islamist extremists – both radicalized German citizens and foreign nationals – remain a security concern. Several rudimentary “lone-wolf” attacks occurred since 2016. Despite the relative infrequency of large-scale, terror-related incidents in the country, plots against civilians and soft targets cannot be ruled out. A homegrown extremist would most likely act in on their own, or within a small cell. Potential targets within Berlin could include government buildings, transport infrastructure such as airports and railways, or high-profile commercial interests.
