I recently looked into the postal codes of Germany and found some mistakes.
Where can I find a form to revise this information?

With best regards
Jay

Thanks for your help.

The question is rather whether "Ortsteil" (suburb) or "Ortszusatz" should be part of the name. In case the answer is no in both cases, I suggest the following changes:

(DE, 10999, Berlin Kreuzberg) -> (DE, 10999, Berlin)
(DE, 10245, Berlin Friedrichshain) -> (DE, 10245, Berlin)
(DE, 77933, Lahr/Schwarzwald) -> (DE, 77933, Lahr)

I search for a zipcode table too. I see that "DE.txt" (source http://download.geonames.org/export/zip/) city "Berlin" is most incomplete or wrong. (That was the only city I look for)

As example

DE 13047 Reinickendorf Berlin BE 00 Berlin, Stadt 11000 52.5667 13.3333 4 

should be
DE 13047 Berlin Berlin BE 00 Berlin, Reinickendorf 11000 52.5667 13.3333 4 

One zipcode can have multiple communities. As example:
DE 13051 Berlin Berlin BE 00 Berlin, Stadt 11000 52.5815 13.4908 6 

Zipcode 13051 => https://www.suche-postleitzahl.org/plz-gebiet/13051

So for germany this list missing many many entries for communities.
