Ankommen App (official app by German authorities)

Ankommen is a free app developed by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees in conjunction with the Federal Agency for Labor, the Goethe Institute and the Bavarian Radio and Television.

The app serves as a go-to for new refugees arriving in Germany: it gives refugees tips about living in Germany, including shopping and food advice, information on where health services are provided, a step by step description of how to use trains and busses in different areas, and how to integrate children through educational opportunities. Ankommen also provides information on asylum procedure, vocational training and job opportunities, and more.

Refugees can also learn German on this app, which connects them to volunteers who speak German with them—practicing in this way is the best way to learn the language.

This app is available in 5 languages and can be used offline.

Love Europe Refugee App

The Love Europe app for Refugees is available for you to download and help you navigate through Europe. The app will help you find what you need most, both on your journey and when you settle.

Everyone can use the app as a platform to show love to refugees and newcomers. You can add helpful locations, local events, but also make yourself available to get connected with a refugee. The app contains a lot of helpful videos and links about language, culture and more.

Love-Europe isn’t just an app, but is’t a tool to help integrate. Getting to know people, becoming friends with people in their new neighbourhoods, is key to integrating.

This app helps refugees and newcomers find the information they need most. The app provides lots of locations in different countries: available at the moment are Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland and France. Greece, Austria, Sweden, the UK, Malta and other countries will follow quickly.

Even when you are offline, the app still works for navigation and events. All locations and events are stored on your phone so you can navigate to locations using the compass function if you are disconnected from the Internet.

The app will also help you communicate during your travel and stay. The app is multilingual and always displays information in two languages, so it can be used as a communication tool. The phrasebook provides a lot of basic phrases you can use in another language.

When you’re new in a city or area, it will be great to connect with people in the neighbourhood. In the app, you find a local events agenda, with events for refugees and newcomers. Think about language café, cultural activities, sports, meet and greet with people from the area. It will help you to integrate into your new place.
