Directory of Locations and Courts

You can use the Directory of Locations and Courts to find the competent local court (district, state and higher regional court) and the public prosecutor’s office for any location in the Federal Republic of Germany. Please note that due to procedural law another court may have exclusive local jurisdiction according to the subject matter in dispute.

The postcode and name of the town in question are to be specified, with abbreviations being sufficient. If the competent court cannot be determined solely on the basis of this information, this will be indicated.

A search for the addresses of courts and judicial authorities is also possible.
