Examples of German mobile phone numbers

Use this format when calling a German mobile phone number from outside Germany:
- 0049 160 66 22 899
- 0049 178 32 11 111 -> You basically drop the zero at the beginning of the mobile phone number. This works from outside and inside Germany so it is the preferred format to save numbers on your phone.
