    Security in Amsterdam

    Amsterdam is generally considered safe, but like any other major city, it does have its share of security issues. Visitors should be aware of pickpocketing and petty theft, particularly in crowded areas and tourist hotspots. It’s important to be vigilant particularly in unfamiliar or isolated areas, and especially at night.

    Maritime security in Amsterdam is a key issue. A variety of businesses, including petrochemical companies, container terminals, and shipyards are located in the Westpoort Amsterdam Industrial Zone. The Port of Amsterdam is the fifth largest port in Europe with EUR 110 billion of imports and exports passing through in 2022.

    Security to protect the tourism industry is also important. Amsterdam is a popular tourist destination, with over 21 million tourists visiting the city in 2022. Tourists are drawn to Amsterdam’s rich history, culture, and attractions, such as Anne Frank House, the Rijksmuseum, and the many canals and city waterways.
