Phone calls in Germany

by Andrea Segura - Wednesday, March 15, 2017

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.

To call the US or Canada from Germany, dial IAC + CC + LN

The local telephone number of the ExperiencePlus! headquarters in Colorado is 970-484-8489. You would dial 00-1-970-484-8489.

To call Germany from another European country, dial IAC + CC + LN

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 00-49-8930670.

To call Germany from within Germany, dial LN

The local telephone number for the Munich Olympic Park is (0)-8930670. You would dial 0-8930670. Unlike the US there is no need to differentiate local and long distance by dialing a 1. Notice that the Trunk Code (0) is dialed.
