Hamburgische Bürgerschaft


Welcome to the website of the Parliament of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg!

We invite you to learn more about the work of Hamburg Parliament– the State Parliament in Hamburg – and to get to know Hamburg City Hall better.

Politics are much more exciting than most people think. They are made by people for people. In Hamburg Parliament, politics are developed for Hamburg.

Political decisions are important to all of us, because they change our lives. We would like to acquaint you more closely with the procedures and people involved in this process. What is Hamburg Parliament? Who works in Parliament? What is being debated and decided there? Here you can find the answers.

Get involved, take part in politics! A working democracy needs people who take an active part in politics. But how can citizens influence politics? People who want to join the discussions and help shaping politics need to have insight. These pages will help you to gain that insight.

We are striving to invoke confidence in the work of Parliament by making it more transparent and tangible. We want to to open the City Hall to citizens at as many occasions as possible. Hamburg City Hall is always an open house. Use the wide range of opportunities to visit us.

We are looking forward to your visit via internet or in person in Hamburg City Hall.

Carola Veit

President of the Hamburg Parliament
