About us

In order to protect young women from dubious employment agents with questionable motives, native Swedish politician and women’s rights activist Ellen Ammann opened the first German Catholic railway station mission at Munich Central station in 1897 with the “Marian Girls’ Protection Association”, founded in 1895. The mission was based on an evangelical equivalent opened in Berlin in 1894 by Pastor Johannes Burckhardt. Today, the Munich Bahnhofsmission is jointly run by IN VIA München e.V. (Munich catholic social services for women and girls) NPO and Evangelisches Hilfswerk München GmbH (Munich evangelical welfare organization). We see ourselves as one of Munich’s social services and welcome all those in need of help. Since emergencies don’t keep to office hours, the Munich Bahnhofsmission is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This means we are often the first and last port of call. We offer a wide range of services spanning emergency food supplies, night shelters for women and even direct financial assistance.
