Addressing formats
The postal code contains five digits and is placed to the left of the city.

Post Office Box addresses and street addresses always have different postcodes. Make sure the code you use corresponds to the address you use.

P.O.Box in German is Postfach (Pf), Street is Strasse (Str.).

Compound street names are hyphenated: Rudolf-Diesel-Str.

The designators O (former East Germany) and W (former West Germany), used before reunification, should not be used. The entire country should be addressed as GERMANY or REPUBLIC OF GERMANY.
