Deutsche Post AG have confirmed that exceptionally heavy rain has caused extreme flooding, mainly in the west of the country. This has led to destruction, disruption or closure of regional and national roads, including motorways. Deutsche Post infrastructure has likewise suffered damage.

Consequently, postal services in large areas of western Germany are currently interrupted. The postcode areas most severely affected are 42XXX, 44XXX, 45XXX, 50XXX, 52XXX, 53XXX, 54XXX, 56XXX, 58XXX and 95XXX.

Inbound and outbound international services are in general operating as normal, but exchanges of dispatches by road with neighbouring countries to the west of Germany may be affected by road closures.


Due to special quarantine measures put in place by Germany, Deutsche Post need to comply and may have reduced workforce available. As a result, some mail services are not available, including signature on delivery which has been suspended. Delays to mail services are to be expected.
