Accommodation and housing offers

Baden-Württemberg state accommodation

We ask all refugees who are not staying in private accommodation to contact the nearest state reception center (Landeserstaufnahmeeinrichtung, LEA). They are open all day and located at the following locations in Baden-Württemberg:

  • Karlsruhe (Durlacher Allee 100, 76137 Karlsruhe)
  • Sigmaringen (Binger Straße 28, 72488 Sigmaringen)
  • Freiburg (Müllheimer Straße 7, 79115 Freiburg)
  • Ellwangen (Georg-Elser-Straße 2, 73479 Ellwangen)

The initial reception center (LEA) responsible for the city of Esslingen is the LEA in Ellwangen. From there, refugees are allocated from the state's initial reception centers to other accommodation throughout Baden-Württemberg.
