List Of Postal Codes In Germany
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 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

Postal Code
A POSTAL CODE (also known locally in various English-speaking countries throughout the world as a POSTCODE, POST CODE, EIRCODE, PIN CODE or ZIP CODE) is a series of letters or digits or both, sometimes including spaces or punctuation, included in a postal address for the purpose of sorting mail . In February 2005, 117 of the 190 member countries of the Universal Postal Union had postal code systems. Although postal codes are usually assigned to geographical areas, special codes are sometimes assigned to individual addresses or to institutions that receive large volumes of mail, such as government agencies and large commercial companies. One example is the French CEDEX system
