German Package Delivery on Base

Does the German postal system deliver packages to the apartments on Vogelweh? I ask because Real is haveing a killer deal on a schuhschrank with free delivery. They don't have it at the store. Also, if yes, is there a size limit? This package should not be terribly large, but might weigh about 15 to 20 pounds, about 3'Lx2'W.

Yes, you have a German address for your apartment. You can get it from the housing office. I live up on LRMC, and have had many things shipped, even as large as a piano from Thomann Music (shipped from their warehouse in Germany).

When you moved in, housing should have given you a pamphlet talking about living in military housing. In this, they should have listed what your address would be (more than likely, you would have to replace your address with the wildcard character they listed).

I have seen the following address for vogelweh before:

Geb. ####
Vogelweh Kaserne, 67661
Kaiserslautern

Also:

Your Buliding # and Apt #
Vogelweh Geb.
Kaiserslautern 67661


Geb means "Building", or something to that extent.
Once again, check with the housing office for your official German mailing address. Also...you have a German address for your APO, so things can also be sent there from Germany. It's better just going to your house, though.

So what do I do if the website keeos automatically correcting the address into something tha is incorrect?

It keeps changing my address from:
Vogelweh Geb. ####-S
67661 Kaiserslautern

to:
Washington Street ####
67661 Kaiserslautern

This is not correct, as I actually live in Colorado Ave.
The only way I could get it to accept it is if I entered it is:
Address: Colorado Avenue ####-S
Other Address: Vogelweh Geb.
Zip and Cit: 67661 Kaiserslautern

Would that work?

I think your best answer will come from the post office. Please ask at the post office, and tell us the correct way to do this. Thank you.
