Most Dangerous Places In Vienna, Austria

The Places to Avoid in Vienna (Ca. 2 Million People) A Rather Calm City, but there definitely are dangerous Areas too.

The Top Ten

1 Rennbahnweg

Whoever wrote "Avoid the Place, especially near the Underground Station, they kill for a phone." was obviously never in Vienna. There are very few murders in Vienna as a whole. There is no place in Vienna where it isn't much more likely that you will die from a heart attack or stroke than a murder.

Vienna is the city with the highest quality of living in the world for the 6th or 7th year in a row now, and that is for a good reason.

Rennbahnweg is located in the North East in the 22nd District. Loads of Brutal Robbers and Burglars, Avoid the Place, especially near the Underground Station, they kill for a phone.

2 Favoriten

10th District has a very good transport connection with the touristic center which makes it worth considering. Crime rate is low everywhere in Vienna, but unfortunately you can see drug dealers by the train stations in many other districts, too.

The 10th District in the very South. It is the Districts Center, ok at Day Time but Really bad at night Time. Many Stabbings and lots of Drug Trafficking here

3 Fünfhaus

Very dangerous, avoid the Westbahnhof!

A Part of the 15th District in the West. more or less a Dump. Drugs and Gangs here.

4 Aspern

Lots of robbery and dangerous people. Most of the restaurants are for washing money. Would definitely not recommend to visit this place

Better bring a weapon when you‘re coming to aspern

5 Simmering

Super dangerous, tons of crime, and BANKRUPT. Don't go there at night. Avoid having cash or any valuables on you. Corrupt police force. Sometimes it's better not to stop when they ask you to. But anyways, Simmering sucks. By the way, if you're moving to the Gasometer, bring a gun... You're gonna need it...

Can confirm the Chechen gang thing. Stabbings and violent muggings every week. The media has stopped reporting it because it has become so frequent. Gasometer area is the worst. You better bring some sort of weapon.

So dangerous

So dangerous, home from nikoz

6 Brigittenau

The 20th District. The entire District is a chaos, with the highest rate of Murder in the City, but then again there are nice places as well.

7 Leopoldstadt

Blood thirsty Jews come out and drink the life force of the Goyim in this district. Your wallet will never be safe from them as their thirst for shekels know no bounds. Beware of the evil demonic jew in this area.

Used to be the most dangerous place in the Country but it's calmed down now, still a fatal area though, near Praterstern Station ther is lots of Poverty and Many Homeless People.

€In 2016 Austria had a homicide rate of 0.53/100.000 per population - one of the lowest rates in the world.“ - wikipedia

There is no fatal area in austria/vienna at all.
To be fair vienna has a problem with pickpockets (like any other place in the world that attracts tourists) but you need to be very very very unlucky to become a victim of a violent crime like robbery

Do a bit of research and you will see: vienna is one of the safest and most beautiful cities in the world. - Soso11

8 Praterstern

Very dangerous filled with drunken scum bags. No wonder there is a police station right near there.

Lots of gangs

Ok but unpleasant even during the day, in the evening, especially after 8pm when the only large Billa supermarket in Wien is open until 10pm, the place is a hell on Earth. The scum from all over the world is present. Drunks, drogged, dealers, beggars, thiefs, wolfpack like gangs hanging around. This is the heritage of multiculti world we live in... not good

Praterstern was not that bad a few years ago, but recently, it definitely has moved up this list as it would, in my opinion, belong to the top 3 with Favoriten and Fünfhaus

9 Ottakringer Straße

Dangerous at night

Avoid eye-contact, a wrong look and you get beaten up.

10 Meidling

Along the Gaudenzdorfer Gürtel, I heard no gunshot for 4 years living there. It's quite boring...

Along the Gaudenzdorfer Gürtel, at the border to the 5th District, this Place is terrible with loads of gunshots to be heard and police sirens constantly on. Beware.

The Contenders

11 Großfeldsiedlung

They kill for money and a phone

It's actually the 21st district. It's a very nice part of Floridsdorf, just like a little town within a big city.

A large area where people live in the North of the 22nd District near Rennbahnweg. Burglars Muggers and Robbers roam around here

12 Hernalser Gürtel

A Road along the 16&17 District, the Gürtel seperates the Inner and the Outer Districts. Poor Part of the City with lots of Crime.

13 Karlsplatz
14 Heiligenstadt

A Dull Area of the possibly richest District in Vienna, the 19th. Heiligenstadt is in the South of the District, and borders to the 20th. Lots of Muggers here.

15 Wienerberg

Similar to Stockwell in London. Nice Parts and Run Down areas. Not the best place for a walk at night.

16 Breitensee
17 Josefstadt
18 Floridsdorf

A rule of thumb should be to not cross the Danube. There is no real reason to visit the 21. District it's a sad "workers district" without many attractions. Its not dangerous at day but at night you will see the worst people of the city there, its very unlikely that someone is going to physically harm you but burglary is common here. People can be also very unpleasant to Tourist there so I wouldn't ask there an 60 year old Viennese man to help you they are known to be grumpy. But if you want to see where the working class citizen live and want to experience all the different cultures than it could be worth it to visit the 21. District, just get there on day.

19 Karl Seitz Hof

21st district. Dangerous place to be

20 Schottentor
21 Nordrandsiedlung
22 Autokaderstraße

Many groups of kanacks

23 Roßauer Lände

Many men hanging out there harassing women especially of their own culture.

24 Innere Stadt

Very poor and desolate area. The “murder capital” of Austria. Shootings are common, as are knife fights between rival gangs. Restaurants there are mostly mob meeting places. Avoid at all costs.

25 Ottakring
26 Brunner Straße
27 Zentralfriedhof 2.Tor

Take Care of the Bike Gangs there. They burn You with benzin and they have Basees anderen guns and they Stab You...
