Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi everyone,

it might be a complete stupid question - but I wonder if the ZIP-codes ("Postleitzahlen / PLZ" in Germany) are mapped as areas / polygons in OSM? If yes, could anyone tell me the appropriate tags so that I can identify them in the database and may I ask for a overpass-statement to get them, too?

Thanks, Stefan aka nordie69
