CURRENT SAFETY TIPS
Compared to other big cities in the world, Berlin is considered quite safe. Our "Motzstraßen-Kiez" in Schöneberg is, however, a popular rainbow nightlife district, which unfortunately currently magically attracts a gang of thieves.
Some general tips for the area:

- Beware of Ko drops. There are rumors that those drugs have been used recently. Keep an eye on your drink in the bars.
- Beware of pick-pockets. If an unknown young man starts suddenly dancing around you and touching you everywhere, this can mean something else than a sudden love. (Sometimes they work in a group of three).
- Keep distance to groups of three of East-European style, strong looking, dark clothed boys/men hanging around here or aproaching you.
- It is not a splendid idea to run through nightlife places with pockets full of money and your passport.
