As a party outside Germany, can I also get a German number?

Yes you can. At Belfabriek you can get 3 different types of German phone numbers, which we will briefly explain below.

Local numbers

Just like many other countries, in Germany, regional codes are also known. For example, Berlin has area code 030. Does your company have a strong connection to the Berlin region? Then you can order a 030 number through Belfabriek. In principle, Belfabriek can register all possible area codes. Please note: a German local phone number requires a local address. This means that you cannot apply for a local area code without having a business address in the city concerned. Other phone numbers do not have this requirement, we will explain them below.

National numbers

Would you like to offer your products and/or services throughout Germany? Then a national number 032 is perfect for this. These numbers are not linked to a specific city or region and therefore have a national image. Callers can call these numbers at local rates. There are no additional costs compared to local landline numbers.

0800 numbers (freephone number)

Germany also has 0800 numbers, which callers can call free of charge. The operator pays all call charges. These numbers are great for charities, for example, but also for highly competitive industries. It is important to note that toll-free 0800 numbers cannot be called from abroad.
