Tips and information for lessees: How does renting a temporary apartment in Hamburg work? →
Why choose a furnished rental in Hamburg?
Having one’s own temporary home is the perfect solution for people who come to Hamburg for a few months (or even longer) and either cannot or do not want to move all their stuff. The most common reasons for temporary housing are a new job, a project for work, studies, or continuing education in Hamburg.
There are many other reasons, though, why an interim apartment is a very good or even necessary transitional solution. For example, a furnished apartment is needed when a house or apartment is temporarily uninhabitable due to water damage. Home builders whose house will not be finished on time need good accommodations for the whole family until their own home is ready.
Just as there are people who simply want to settle into their new job and get to know the city first before looking for a permanent apartment. Sometimes we support entire families who come to Hamburg for medical treatment of a relative. There are 1001 reasons and situations why temporary housing is an essential service.
Hamburg is a city used to accommodating waves of people fleeing conflict. We are always happy to help someone find a safe haven.

Tip: For apartments located in a less central location, you usually pay lower rent than for apartments in districts such as Winterhude, Eppendorf or Sternschanze. In addition, your neighborhood is a little quieter in the mostly tranquil, green and family-friendly districts on the outskirts of Hamburg. In Hamburg, the public transportation system (HVV) is very good. Generally, 1 or 2-room-apartments are on offer for rent rather than larger properties for families.

Why rent out a furnished apartment in Hamburg?
There are various reasons for renting out one or several furnished properties. For example, what do you do with your furnished, 2-room apartment if, for professional or private reasons, you do not want to live in it for a few months, but neither do you want to pay double rent? Maybe you are going on sabbatical.
What do you do with the fully furnished house in the city you inherited as you wait for it to sell? Perhaps you would like to rent out several apartments for interim rent. What if you move in with your partner and would like to see if everything works before giving up your own comfortable apartment and furnishings? We look forward to receiving your registration from a period of 3 months.

How does renting out a fully furnished apartment in Hamburg work?
From the marketing of your interim apartment to the rental contract, we offer fast and secure handling. Centrally located, well-equipped and well-maintained 1- and 2-room apartments with a balcony are in high demand, but there are also suitable prospective lessees for larger apartments or apartments on the quiet outskirts of the city.

Service team for companies and relocation agencies
We set up our team for corporate clients back in the early 90s when the idea of "interim living" was still very new, and we still called ourselves the Mitwohnzentrale. At that time, we recognized that companies often needed close contacts and support when they were looking for accommodations for their employees. Our colleagues from the company service team work exclusively with companies and relocation agents. We have been working successfully with many customers from the B2B sector for many years. Relocation agencies take care of the formalities, especially with international clients, and are happy to outsource the accommodations search to City-Wohnen.
