Even though WhatsApp, Skype and other apps are mostly used for making international phone calls nowadays, you may end up having to use a regular phone. Here’s how to dial.
- The International Access Code (IAC) for the US and Canada is 011 and for Germany it’s 00
- The Country Code (CC) for Germany is 49 and for the US and Canada it’s 1
- Area Codes in Germany can be various digits in length
- To call Germany from the US or Canada, dial IAC + CC + Local Number.
Example: The local telephone number for the Munich Olympic Park is (0)-8930670. The number could also be listed as +49-(0)-8930670. In both cases, you would dial 011-49-8930670. Notice the Trunk code (0) is dropped when you dial.
