Not really, burglars tend to go for flats on the ground or first floor. They want a quick way out through a back window or door in case you come home, and from the 14th floor that can be problematic!
Do you have any evidence?
I have hear that a lot when I was looking for a ground floor in Paris but the truth is people on top floor are very vulnerable because no one is going to check what is happening on the top floor.

The Zurich cantonal police disagrees with you there
If you take the guided tour of their crime museum, they will explain the stats to you, which definitely indicate that top floor apartments are at higher risk for burglary. Not quite as high as ground floor ones but still more so than other floors. And they were adamant that you should lock the door when you are at home or if you "just quickly pop into the cellar".
Another issue with top-floor apartments (depending on how the roof of the building is designed, of course) is that there might be a door that gives access from the stairs to the building roof. Usually these doors are quite easy to open as they have a simple lock. Once there it's very easy for the burglars to lower them down on the top floor balcony or if it's an attic cross the fence between the "service area" and your terrace.
