Iso 3166-2:de

ISO 3166-2:DE is the entry for codes for the names of the principal subdivisions (e.g., provinces or states) of all countries coded in ISO 3166-1.

Currently for Germany, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for all 16 states.

Each code consists of two parts, separated by a hyphen. The first part is DE, the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code of Germany. The second part is two letters. The codes for Bremen (DE-HB) and Hamburg (DE-HH) are based on their official names, Free Hanseatic City of Bremen and Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg respectively.

Current codes

Subdivision names are listed as in the ISO 3166-2 standard published by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency (ISO 3166/MA).
