Security

Security Level: 3 
Crime is the security concern travelers to Germany are most likely to encounter.  Strikes occur relatively frequently and have the potential to affect services used by travelers.  Demonstrations occur frequently in the country, especially in the larger cities.  The threat of jihadi and right-wing terrorism remains a serious concern in Germany, particularly in light of recent terrorist attacks and foiled plots. Kurdish terrorism is also a recent concern.

Hotel Accommodations

Heidelberg or Mannheim provides the best selection of accommodations in the mid-priced range. Rooms are in high demand. Be sure to check the cancellation and prepayment policies as some are more flexible than others. Larger cities such as Frankfurt and Stuttgart are further but offer a variety of 3-4-5 star properties without the premium rates and strict cancellation policies. Be aware that commuting will be more difficult with congested roads and overcrowded trains. Check the hotel’s website for information on proximity to nearby entertainment and dining. By booking early, you secure the most desirable rooms at the best price. Last minute bookings can be expensive.
