Registration form for tenants


Register and select search criteria

Please take a moment to do our online registration and tell us exactly what you are looking for. When do you want to move in and for what period of time? How many people? Will you bring a pet with you? From the beginning of the apartment search to the rental contract, we are personally there for you as you look for a temporary furnished apartment. We give detailed advice and suggest apartments that you can either view or book immediately.

Your registration and apartment search are free of charge or course. Nor are you obliged to rent an apartment from City-Wohnen.


How quickly can I find a furnished apartment?

That depends on how quickly you decide. If, for example, you register with us in the morning with a concrete booking request, you can very probably sign the lease agreement for interim living on the same day. If you would like to view a large selection of apartments, it may naturally take a little more time.

Can I book a temporary apartment immediately?

Would you like to book a certain furnished apartment immediately? Many lessors agree to rent their apartments without a personal viewing. Fill out the online registration and let us know your booking wish. We will arrange everything for you. As soon as the lessor agrees, we will draw up the lease agreement. As an agency directly on site in Hamburg, we know all the apartments we offer and have photographed them ourselves.

Can I view the apartment before deciding?

You are already in Hamburg and would like to view the apartment? We would be happy to arrange this for you. The lessor decides whether City-Wohnen should carry out the viewing or whether you arrange the viewing appointment directly with the lessor. You will always have an individual appointment. We do not have group appointments with many apartment applicants.

For which period of time can I rent an interim apartment?

How long you can rent an apartment for a limited period of time varies greatly, the details can be found in the exposé. However, the minimum rental period is three months, with a few exceptions. A shorter rental period is usually not allowed in Hamburg, unless the lessor has a permit to rent out holiday apartments (Wohnraumschutzverordnung) and has a registration number (from January 2019).

How many occupants are allowed and is it possible to have guests?

The apartments are equipped for a certain number of people and the additional costs are calculated accordingly. You will find the details in the apartment description. An apartment that is offered for two people may therefore not be occupied by four people. Children who need their own bed are also counted as one person. You can of course receive visitors in your accommodation as long as it is actually a visitor and it is not another flatmate.

Are pets allowed?

You can see whether pets are allowed in an apartment in the apartment description. If you would like to bring an animal with you, please let us know so that we can only suggest suitable apartments.

Can I reserve a furnished apartment?

No, unfortunately a reservation is not possible. Whoever makes a binding decision for an apartment first, will get it.

Who decides whether I can rent the apartment?

In most cases the lessor himself decides with whom he wants to sign a rental contract.

How are the apartments furnished?

Our apartments are always fully equipped. What exactly is available you can see perfectly with the photos and exposés. Please keep in mind that many lessors offer their own apartments - there is a personal heart and soul in the apartment! Every furnished apartment has its own character.

Are there bed linen and dishes?

Dishes and kitchen equipment are always available, but the equipment varies from apartment to apartment. Duvets and bed linen are usually provided, but not always. Have a close look at the exposé beforehand or ask us.

Is smoking allowed in the apartment?

Whether smoking is allowed in the apartment or not is determined by the lessor. If you would like to smoke, please let us know so that we can only suggest suitable apartments.

Is there internet and are the costs included?

You will find information on whether there is an internet connection or WLan and how the costs are calculated in the apartment description. If there is no internet, it might be worthwhile to sign a short-term internet contract.

Who is looking for a temporary flat?

The main reason why someone is looking for a furnished temporary apartment through us via City-Wohnen is the job. Often employees come to Hamburg for a project work, or have got a new job and want to know if they like the job. A temporary home is the perfect solution.

Specialised in corporate clients

Our company service team deals exclusively with corporate clients and is available as a direct contact for companies. Finding accommodation for several employees or colleagues at the same time is often a challenge. We keep the overview and quickly get everything under control.

Relocation help for XPats

If you are not in Hamburg, you will need help finding accommodation. We offer this quickly, safely and flexibly. Relocation agencies are service providers who take care of the entire organisation of the move and the paperwork when a change of residence is imminent. The search for a suitable temporary apartment is very often outsourced to City-Wohnen Hamburg. We are pleased about a very good cooperation with the large relocation agencies in Hamburg.

A furnished apartment for colleagues?

Colleagues often share a furnished apartment. Larger apartments often have two bedrooms. If it should be a bit cheaper, you can also choose a smaller 2-room apartment with one bedroom and a living room with a sofa bed.

We also act as an agent for entire apartment buildings. With a little luck, we can accommodate several colleagues in the same building.

Who actually rents a furnished apartment?

Many people rent out their own apartment because they themselves will be working elsewhere for a longer period of time or will be going abroad. Often there are couples who move in together and "just in case" want to keep both apartments for the time being. These apartments often have a very individual and charming character.

Professional lessors often offer several apartments or apartment houses. These apartments are usually neutral and modern, but less individually furnished. Often an additional service can be booked here, e.g. a laundry or cleaning service.

I have decided on my dream apartment, what is the next step?

As soon as you have decided on a furnished apartment and the lessor agrees, we will draw up your lease agreement for interim living for you immediately. Now you can plan your moving to Hamburg in peace!
