Have a look in the OSM wiki at MapCSS/Examples.

First, download the raw OSM data from one of the mentioned sources.

Then, do a filtering via osmfilter by choosing --keep="postal_code="

Finally adapt the mentiones CSS stylefile to display the postalcode within each area.

You can also try any other rendering Software to produce an optical output.

Layers.osm.fr also has a layer showing town-level boundaries if you just want to see the data (not work with it) and if you do not mind the approximation of postcode=* <-> adminlevel=8.
