Travel Safety in Germany & Switzerland

Jump to last reply

I was planning to take my 18 year old granddaughter to Europe as a celebration of her high school graduation. In view of the events that took place on New Years in places such as Cologne, I am feeling apprehensive about it. I'm not sure her parents would even allow her to go after such frightening things happened all over Germany. We would be in the smaller villages along the Rhine and Mosel Rivers, and in Rothenburg. Also travel to Interlaken, Luzern and a few other places in Switzerland. How safe is it? I am not concerned about mass terrorist attacks like in Paris, but rather random attacks of young girls by Syrian and other middle eastern "refugees". I love Europe so much and have traveled there many times, including a solo trip a few years ago. I wanted to share this love of Europe with my granddaughter, but now I am afraid to.
