Safe harbours in Austria

In Austria, several local groups are working for the implementation of safe harbours.

These cities, municipalities and provinces have already declared their solidarity (as of 05.01.21):

  • Municipality of Herzogenburg (in the province of Lower Austria)
  • Districts in Vienna (in the federal state of Vienna): 4th Wieden, 6th Mariahilf, 7th Neubau, 8th Josefstadt, 9th Alsergrund, 12th Meidling, 21st Floridsdorf
  • Districts in Graz (province of Styria): V. Bezirk Gries
  • The province of Tyrol has agreed to take in additional refugees.

Further locations/districts are currently in preparation or not yet confirmed.

The extent of the reception capacities and the willingness to take in refugees in Austria is also shown on the “Map of Safe Places”. There it is assumed that there are about 3000 sustainable places for people from Moria alone.
