How should I address my parcel for delivery to Germany?

Because of Germany’s strict postage rules, there are a couple of things you’ll need to include in your parcel’s address label to ensure it is delivered without any problems. Most notably, Germany has a new five-digit post code system that you’ll need to adhere to if you want your parcel to arrive at its destination.
