Customs Charges to Germany

Currently there are no customs forms or charges when parcels and goods are sent between the UK and Germany. This may change following Brexit and we will post detailed information here as soon as it is available.

Postcodes & address style in Germany

After the reunification of Germany postcodes were standardised in 1993. The new post codes have 5 numbers where the first 2 numbers represent the postal region, some of which go over state boundaries. Some cities also have their own city post codes.

As in most European countries the house flat or apartment number is written after the street name and the postcode is followed by the city name. For example the address of the British Embassy in Berlin is:

Wilhelmstraße 70 - 71,
10117 Berlin,

When sending a parcel from the UK with Pharos Parcel it is important to write only the 5 numbers in the postcode field.
