Telephone numbers in Germany


Telephone numbers in Germany

Country Code: 49
International Call Prefix: 00

There are no standard lengths for either area codes or subscribers' numbers in Germany, meaning that some subscribers' numbers may be as short as three digits. Larger towns have shorter area codes permitting longer subscriber numbers in that area. Some examples:

For complete list see: area codes in Germany

00 International access code 010xx(x) dial-around-services (Call by Call - alternative carrier) 011xx service numbers 012xx "innovative services", Unified Messaging & non-geographical VoIP 0137x televoting & TV call-in-shows 0138 teledialog (radio and TV stations) 015x cell phone * 016x pagers & cell phone * 017x cell phone * 0180x shared-cost-service (partly more expensive than national calls) 0181x virtual private network (VPN) 01888 government numbers (departments in Berlin or the former capital Bonn) 0190x premium rate until December 31st, 2005 (migrated to 0900) 0192x internet dial-up numbers 0201 Essen 0202 Wuppertal 0203 Duisburg 0211 Düsseldorf 0221 Köln/Cologne 0228 Bonn 0231 Dortmund 0241 Aachen 0251 Münster 030 Berlin 0310 announcement of current carrier for long-distance calls 0311 announcement of current carrier for local calls 032x non-geographical VoIP 0331 Potsdam 0341 Leipzig 0345 Halle (Saale) 0351 Dresden 0361 Erfurt 0381 Rostock 040 Hamburg 0421 Bremen 0431 Kiel 0451 Lübeck 0511 Hannover 0521 Bielefeld 0611 Wiesbaden 0621 Mannheim 06221 Heidelberg 0681 Saarbrücken 069 Frankfurt 0700 lifetime personal numbers (non-geographical) 0711 Stuttgart 0721 Karlsruhe 0800 toll free (within Germany) 089 München/Munich 09001 premium rate (information services) 09003 premium rate (entertainment services) 09005 premium rate (adult services) 09009 premium rate (internet premium dial-up services) 0911 Nürnberg/Nuremberg 0941 Regensburg 0951 Bamberg 110 police 112 fire & ambulance 116116 blocking service (report loss of credit cards, SIM card etc.) 118xx directory assistance services 19222 medical emergency operator (only in some regions) 19449 local public transportation information (only in some regions) *(not longer assignable to specific operators due to number portability)

The default length for newly assigned numbers (area code without 0 + subscriber number) is 10 or 11 digits, but there are older shorter numbers in use. Although these have not been lengthened to fit in with newer numbers, they are not reassigned if they fall into disuse. The area codes are, if not counting the national trunk prefix '0', from 2 digits (only for Berlin +49 30, Hamburg +49 40, Frankfurt +49 69 and Munich +49 89) to 5 digits long (for smaller towns in the former East German states +49 3xxxx).

The former East German states were integrated into the Federal Republic's numbering system at 03xxx because Berlin's 030 was the only 03 area code before. The used range is from 0331 (Potsdam) to 039999 (small village Tutow in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania). Due to limited number range also 5-digit area codes are used there, whereas in the old Federal Republic only 4-digit area codes (without the leading 0) are used.

Callers from outside Germany do not dial the "0" prefix , like (international call prefix)-49-69-123456789 (example).

Emergency numbers in Germany are 110 for police and 112 for fire and ambulance. In some states, the non-prioritised number 19222 is used for ambulance services, though this is heavily lobbied against and expected to be phased out in the future.

The 01 prefix is for special numbers, and is not tied to any particular geographic area.
