well now i'm going with at least one other person my age. I've found hostels on hostel world that are under 18. But at this point I just need tons of tips on how not to look like a target.

thanks

Well, all the same like in any other place:
just don't look for a trouble, and try to be self-sufficient in your travel.

Dress like a European teenager (yes, there are differences) and always try your best not to look bewildered or lost.

Look at what German teens wear at sites like www.otto.de and www.quelle.de - 7/8 pants instead of shorts, polo-shirts instead of t-shirts, more colorful and more dressy sneakers than the standard white tennis shoes American teens go for.

Have at least 3 wallets and distribute everything around so that if one wallet gets stolen it won't be the end of the trip.
