We aim at receiving you as refugee at best and offering guidance and integration services at an early stage. Beyond that, many people provide assistance during their leisure time.

On the following pages we have compiled important information concerning the first phase of your residence in order to facilitate guidance in the reception center and to assisst you during the asylum procedure (as of 10/2016).

Employees as well as volunteers espouse with high commitment best possible and humane living conditions. Due to the huge number of daily arriving asy- lum seekers, processes might be delayed or temporarily faulty. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
