In the former military barracks of “Magdeburg-Kaserne” in Klosterneuburg, a reception centre for refugees has been established.
Klosterneuburg Abbey, as the new proprietor of the barrack premises, was able to reach an agreement with the Federal Ministry of the Interior, according to which the barracks may be used free of charge until further notice. The reception centre is managed by the Ministry of the Interior.
