“Auswärtiges Amt – Auslandsvertretungen weltweit”: the app for finding German missions abroad on all standard mobile devices
(© Auswärtiges Amt)
The Federal Foreign Office runs a global network of more than 230 missions abroad. Its interactive and informative app provides quick, easy access to the latest information from the FFO and its embassies and consulates, at any time, wherever you are.

Rotate the globe and zoom in on the embassy or consulate you are looking for, or get an idea of how Germany’s missions are distributed across a particular region.
Once you have located your embassy or consulate, a simple tap will let you save it to your favourites so that you can access it later straight from the start screen.
Advice issued by missions abroad
From the globe screen, you also have the option of switching directly to the “Hinweise der Vertretungen” page, where you can see at a glance which embassies and consulates currently have tips or warnings posted. Please note that the FFO has another app, “Sicher reisen”, especially for travel and security advice.
The latest news, information, addresses and opening hours Enlarge image (© Auswärtiges Amt)
Now you can see what your selected missions have posted: topical articles, photo galleries and current videos. You will also find all the important contact details collated here (addresses, opening times, etc).
