Accommodation in Ludwigshafen
Asylum seekers are housed centrally in collective accommodation as well as decentralized in apartments that are mostly owned by the city.
As the number of people requesting asylum in Germany has risen considerably in the past years, many municipalities lack housing space for refugees and asylum seekers.
The City of Ludwigshafen too faces the big challenge of accommodating all people who come here. The city makes a big effort to supply further housing facilities. The objective here is to place the people preferably in different parts of the city.
The construction of new quarters takes some time, which is why it cannot be avoided that asylum seekers sometimes need to stay in so-called emergency camps for some time. These emergency camps do not contain rooms or apartments. There are compartments to sleep in (equipped with beds and lockers); there are central kitchens and sanitary areas.
