City Administration

The Dresden City Administration is structured into eight departments. Overall responsibility for the City Administration is in the hands of the Mayor. He or she is supported by seven deputies and one departmental manager, who are together in charge of the departments:

  • Mayor's Office
  • General Administration
  • Finances and Land
  • Order and Security
  • Culture
  • Social Services
  • City Development
  • Economic Affairs

The individual departments, furthermore, control the specialist city offices, municipal enterprises (e.g. city drainage, sports facilities and public baths) and other municipal facilities such as libraries, youth clubs and cultural facilities.

Alongside the central city halls, there are also local administrative offices in the 19 city districts into which Dresden is divided. These offices enable citizens to complete many regular administrative procedures directly in their residential districts.

Detailed information on the individual offices of the City Administration, with addresses, opening hours, responsibilities and application forms, is to be found in a topic called »Online City Hall«.

The extent of this information and frequently necessary updates, however, mean that we can presently offer such fully comprehensive information only in German.
