Deutsche Post is reliable service provide for all your postal needs.
Mail service is prompt and efficient in Germany. The goal is to have a Brief (letter), that was mailed in the afternoon, to arrive the following morning anywhere in the country, though this isn’t guaranteed. Most packages can be delivered within a four hundred kilometre radius in one day and nationwide within two days.
You can buy stamps from roadside stamp vending machine also. But you need to have change as it does not have facilities to return change.
The Deutsche Post has simplified, and reduced prices for, sending international letters effective from 1 Jan 2011. Now the prices for sending post to Europe and any other country of the world is same.
