Arrival Center at Patrick-Henry-Village

The state of Baden-Württemberg has established a temporary arrival center for refugees on the former US military area Patrick-Henry-Village. Here, refugees are accommodated by the state of Baden-Württemberg for a short period of time. Up to 600 refugees can be registered daily and examined for health. They can also submit their asylum application to an employee of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF). After, the refugees are distributed to the urban and rural districts.

The city of Heidelberg has been accomodating refugees in smaller entities directly in the urban districts instead of in mass accomodations for years already. This has proven to be a positive concept. The decentralized accomodation allows people a connection to life in the urban districts, which is the foundation for a successful integration.

PHV is developed into a new urban district

Together with partners and the International Building Exhibition (IBA), the city of Heidelberg wants to develop Patrick-Henry-Village (PHV) into a knowledge city of tomorrow. Heidelberg’s biggest conversion area is going to be developed into the 16th urban district over the course oft he following years – and will grow into a sustainable quarter in all dimensions. Basis for all further process is a “Dynamic Masterplan“. 10.000 people are meant to live in the district, 5.000 meant to have their workplace here. The arrival center will take place at Patrick-Henry-Village also in the future.
