District – Every two weeks, a bus with 50 refugees arrives at the former soccer hall in Kaufering.
According to the press spokesman for the district office, Wolfgang Müller, the district is currently meeting 90 percent of its quota.
In a few weeks, gym occupancy threatens to accommodate everyone.
Müller calls the Kauferinger soccer hall the “hub in the district for asylum allocations from the government of Upper Bavaria”.
From there, the refugees would be taken to “where there is still air”, currently to the Landsberg air base near Penzing.
It is not possible to refuse accommodation in the Landsberg district.
"We are in permanent crisis mode: after Corona and energy, now a new refugee crisis," says Müller.
Around 450 refugees have arrived in Landsberg since October - and there is no end in sight.
A good 1,000 asylum seekers and 1,200 refugees from the Ukraine are currently living here.
The district had to prepare for a "stormy spring", at least 100 additional people per month.
An 'asylum' coordination group has been set up.
The big problem: the lack of living space - what to do with the refugees, who mostly come from Afghanistan, Syria, Kosovo and North Macedonia?
People from the Ukraine are currently not the majority of the new arrivals, but they are also looking for accommodation, explains Müller.
Anyone who has living space should contact Andreas Schwan on 08191/129-1395 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The district is currently preparing two or three buildings at the air base, says Müller.
After that, the limit of available living space is reached.
Then gyms would have to be occupied again and containers or tents would have to be set up.
One is already in negotiations with the city for the necessary buildable plots.
In addition to their own administrative capacities - which are almost exhausted - they rely primarily on the 28 voluntary helper groups in the district.
