Vision of City Management Hamburg

Twenty one years ago, City Management Hamburg was brought to life to enhance Hamburg's city centre in the national and international competition. Companies in retail, real estate, culture, leisure, and tourism industries, interest and advertising pools, as well as communities and institutions have joined forces for this purpose.


The perceptions of Hamburg as a major retail location in Northern Europe, increasing the frequency and improving the quality of the stay are declared goals of City Management. Also, City Management represents the interests of its member companies with a strong voice in politics.


The communal commitment is made possible only by the many partners who have recognised the importance of this network. City Management represents more than 850 companies today, in the city centre of Hamburg and the HafenCity. All partners have one thing in common - solidarity through common goals.

Membership benefits:

  • City Management promotes the attractiveness of the city centre as a shopping metropolis, acts as initiator for marketing, cleanliness, and social projects. City Management is continuously working on new events.
  • City Management represents the interests of its members in the face of politics, administration, and the police force and, at the same time, is a competent contact for these institutions. With a significant voice, the partners reach a great deal of attention and acceptance.
  • City Management connects its internal and external partners: The extensive network provides its members with contacts, knowledge, and opportunities to influence and design. City Management also supports individual issues and projects of its members.
