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.
