Before coming to Duisburg, Hollmann was in the youth section of Eintracht Duisburg. He played from 1970 to 1984 for Rot-Weiß Oberhausen and Eintracht Braunschweig in 350 games in the Bundesliga scoring 33 goals.[3]

He took part in the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich.[4][5]

After his playing career, Hollmann worked as football coach. His greatest success as a coach was winning the Turkish Super Cup and the Turkish League with Galatasaray for the 1993–94 season. Further coaching positions were, amongst other clubs, 1. FC Saarbrücken, FC Carl Zeiss Jena and Al-Ahly Cairo.[1]

For several years he has been in the United Arab Emirates where he worked with Al Nasr, Al Shabab (Dubai) and Al-Wahda FC (Abu Dhabi).[6]
