  • In Denmark, as the translation of Danish Overborgmester, it is the title of the highest Mayor of Denmark's capital city, Copenhagen.
  • In Germany, it is sometimes (and perhaps anachronistically or incongruously) used to translate German Oberbürgermeister, the title of the mayors of large, often county-free cities. Germany's mayors, however, serve as the actual executive leaders of their cities. Berlin's mayor, moreover, is referred to as the Regierender Bürgermeister (Governing Mayor) since that office is also equivalent to that of a Ministerpräsident (head of government) of one of Germany's constitutive Bundesländer.
  • In Finland, the head city manager of the capital, Helsinki, is customarily given by the country's President the title ylipormestari [loosely translated: "high mayor"] (which then generally is much more used of the official than kaupunginjohtaja, the title of the office itself), a tradition that resembles closely the Lord Mayoralties in other countries.
