420... Information about the New Access Number

Please bare this in mind if you are planning any publications. Phone calls via the access number 86 will only be forwarded for a limited length of time.


When publishing your telephone number in the future, the hyphen after the access number should be replaced by a blank space in front of the extension number.

+49 3834 420 nnnn

This format will make it easier for mobile phone users to use the telephone numbers on our internet pages. By doing so, they will be able to dial the telephone number with just one click.
