Our Mission

Our heart beats for the city


Pressing ahead with open dialogs. Sharing visions of the future. Shaping city life. This is all in a day’s work for City Management Hamburg. For more than two decades, we have actively shaped the future of the Hanseatic city. And we’ve been successful! So that the Gateway to the World advances further in international rankings and visitors will continue to find their way to the heart of Hamburg.

Representatives of central Hamburg’s retail trade, gastronomy, hotel business, culture, recreation, services, tourism, and real estate trade have joined together in a network. Our goal is to increase Hamburg’s international standing as a retail trade location.

Best practices, social and societal change, international trends: Behind these slogans are interests that City Management Hamburg actively seeks to advance – every day! We see changes not as backsliding, but as an opportunity. Our community provides innovative impulses that we put into practice as concrete actions. In so doing, we promote the diversity of central Hamburg and its genuine Hanseatic flair. From the city. For the city.

OUR HAMBURG

NORDIC CHARACTER, AT HOME IN THE WORLD


Shopping hub, capital city, port metropolis: All this is Hamburg! Our “Venice of the north” as the world calls it has a lot to offer. Hamburg is one of the most popular big cities in Europe, and there is a good reason for that: People are impressed by its unique location on the waters of the Elbe and Alster and a cityscape studded with canals, bridges, and architectural highlights. A harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. World-class museums and theaters as well as a vibrant music and film scene draw millions of people to the Hanseatic city every year.

Want to do some shopping? Off to Hamburg! With over 1,000 retail stores, the Hanseatic city is very popular among shoppers. Unique about this area is the huge variety of shopping opportunities all within walking distance. Internationally famous luxury brands and department stores are next door to small specialty shops. Want to take a break from shopping? Hamburg’s gastronomy invites you to relax along the waterfront. Whether it’s coffee and cake at Rathausmarkt, on Jungfernstieg, or bratwurst on Mönckebergstrasse, there is something for everyone’s culinary and shopping tastes.

In doing so, we promote the downtown area’s diversity for visitors and Hamburg natives alike. No matter whether it is representing interests in general, marketing, and media work, or hosting events

OUR MOTIVATION

COMMON VALUES AND THE WILLINGNESS TO TRANSFORM


Acting in concert with our members, we have successfully dedicated ourselves to a strong and vibrant central Hamburg. A city center that – as Hamburg’s beating heart – inspires the city’s residents as well as visitors from Germany and the world.

We also keep interested parties up to date on all the news and provide details of upcoming events. In addition to matters of cleanliness and security, we promote social projects and realize events and functions: from shopping Sundays to film festivals and our fairytale ships all the way to new cooperative ventures, with the goal of creating new experiences. Our actions contribute to making central Hamburg noticeably more attractive.

For over 20 years, we have seen ourselves as a values-oriented community that maintains a dialog, reliably collects proposals with the aim of achieving practical solutions, and in so doing shapes the future, especially that of the city center. I experience Hamburg’s City Management as exceptionally integrative, cooperative, and high profile. I find its great communicative strength shows itself within the scope of its cooperation in the St. Jacobi Round Table.

From spectacular individual actions, to the established event, to the long-term, sustainable pursuit of crucial goals for the city center area, central Hamburg speaks with one voice thanks to City Management Hamburg.
