Technical info on German phone numbers

  • Germany uses a variable-length numbering plan for its telephone numbers, which can range from 3 to 11 digits (including the area code). The phone numbering system in Germany is regulated by the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur).
  • Country Code: The country code for Germany is +49 or 0049 when dialed internationally.
  • Area Codes: Area codes in Germany (Vorwahl) are 2 to 5 digits long, excluding the initial '0' when dialing from abroad. The length of the area code depends on the size of the city or region. Generally, larger cities have shorter area codes, while smaller towns have longer ones.
  • Local Numbers: The local phone number (Rufnummer) can be 3 to 9 digits long, depending on the area code's length. The total number of digits (area code + local number) usually ranges from 7 to 11, excluding the country code.
  • Leading '0': When dialing a German number within the country, you must use the leading '0' followed by the area code and the local number (e.g., 030 for Berlin, followed by the local number). However, if you are dialing from outside Germany, you should omit the leading '0' and use the country code (e.g., +49 30 for Berlin).
  • Mobile Numbers: Mobile numbers in Germany typically start with a 4-digit area code beginning with '015', '016', or '017', followed by a 7- or 8-digit local number. When dialing a German mobile number from abroad, you should use the country code (+49) and omit the leading '0' (e.g., +49 15x xxxxxxx or +49 16x xxxxxxx).
  • Non-geographic Numbers: Germany also uses non-geographic numbers for various services, such as toll-free (0800), premium-rate (0900), shared-cost (0180), and personal numbering (0700).

The history behind German phone numbers

  • Early beginnings (late 19th century): Telephone services in Germany began in the late 1800s with the founding of multiple private telephone companies. Each company had its own numbering plan, which led to a fragmented and inconsistent system.
  • Weimar Republic (1919-1933): During the Weimar Republic, the organization and regulation of the telephone system improved. The Reichspostzentralamt (National Postal Central Office) took control of the telephone network and worked to standardize the numbering system.
  • Nazi Germany (1933-1945): The telephone system was further centralized and expanded during the Nazi era. The government-controlled Deutsche Reichspost established a nationwide numbering plan, with area codes assigned to various regions and cities.
  • Divided Germany (1949-1990): After World War II, Germany was divided into two separate states: the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). Each state had its own telephone network and numbering system. West Germany adopted a system with two- to five-digit area codes followed by local numbers, while East Germany used a similar system with three- to four-digit area codes.
  • Reunification (1990): With the reunification of Germany, the two telephone networks were merged. The existing West German numbering system was expanded to cover the entire country, and new area codes were assigned to former East German cities.
  • Deregulation and expansion (1990s-2000s): The telecommunications market in Germany was deregulated in the late 1990s, allowing for increased competition and innovation. This led to the creation of new services like mobile phones and VoIP, which required new numbering plans. In 1998, a closed numbering plan was introduced with a fixed length of numbers, including the area code and local number.
  • Current system: Today, Germany uses a geographic numbering system with area codes that vary in length from two to five digits (not including the trunk prefix '0'). The total length of a phone number, including the area code, is usually 10 or 11 digits.
