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

Hi there,

when running this overpass query, all postal_code relations in Germany are returned except for one (78266, relation id 3375856).

out tags;

Without the area filter, the relation is found and returned. However, I don't want to (and cannot) process all postal_code relations, I only want to get the german ones.

Is there something wrong with Overpass/OSM or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance, Daniel

The offending postal_code is of B├╝singen am Hochrhein, a German exclave in Switzerland. The area is included in Germany's admin_level 2 relation.
Maybe there is an issue with the postal code and the country boundary being exactly the same? Just guessing.
