Using mobile phones: remember to dial the local code before the number, for example:
110 to call the police in Nürnberg. Emergency calls from phone boxes are free of charge. If you do not know the local code, dial the general emergency number for mobile phones: 112. The operator will request the appropriate emergency unit.
2. Electricity
The standard power supply is 220 Volts, 50Hz.
Electrical sockets (outlets) in Germany (Deutschland) are one of the two European standard electrical socket types: The "Type C" Europlug and the "Type E" and "Type F" Schuko. If your appliance's plug doesn't match the shape of these sockets, you will need a travel plug adapter in order to plug in. Travel plug adapters simply change the shape of your appliance's plug to match whatever type of socket you need to plug into. If it's crucial to be able to plug in no matter what, bring an adapter for all three types.
Adapter for "Type C" European CEE 7/16 Europlug
Adapter for "Type E/F" European CEE 7/4 or CEE 7/5 Schuko
