Not all addresses in Germany follow the simple knitting pattern of street, house number, postcode and town. Probably the best-known deviation is the Mannheim squares.
Every year, around 4.8 million households in Germany move. With an average household size of 1.75 persons, this corresponds to more than 8.4 million people with a new address. And the trend is increasing; because with the course of globalisation, the labour market demands more flexibility and mobility from all of us. In line with this social change, current studies predict a steady increase in relocations in Germany.
