List of postal codes in Germany

German Postleitzahl map of the first two digits. The green lines mark state borders which do not correspond with postal code areas.

Postal codes in Germany, Postleitzahl (plural Postleitzahlen, abbreviated to PLZ; literally "postal routing number"), since 1 July 1993 consist of five digits. The first two digits indicate the wider area, the last three digits the postal district.

Before reunification, both the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and the German Democratic Republic (GDR) used four-digit codes. Under a transitional arrangement following reunification, between 1989 and 1993 postal codes in the west were prefixed with 'W', e.g.: W-1000 [Berlin] 30 (postal districts in western cities were separate from the postal code) and those in the east with 'O' (for Ost), e.g.: O-1xxx Berlin.

City administrations and postal customers with high mail volumes, or Großkunden have their own postal codes, separate from those used for postal districts or PO Box number ranges.

Postal regions do not necessarily follow state boundaries, so sorting by state is not practical.

The postal regions and some postal codes are:
