The Administrative Court of Hamburg ("Verwaltungsgericht Hamburg") adjudicates administrative matters as court of first instance. Administrative matters include among other things matters pertaining to asylum-law, foreign-nationals-law, police-law, school-law, building-law and civil service law.

The Higher Administrative Court ("Oberverwaltungsgericht Hamburg") serves as appeals court against judgments and other decisions of the Administrative Court. In certain areas, for example large infrastructure plans, it serves as court of first instance.
