Deutsche Bahn and its predecessors Deutsche Bundesbahn, Deutsche Reichsbahn and DRG use a system of letters to denote a station on their network. This is called the DS-100 code, named after the original papers laying out the system, the DS 100, Abk├╝rzungen der Betriebsstellen.

Description of the code

The code is set up as follows:
  • X YYYY Z
where X denotes the Bundesbahndirektion (BD) in West Germany or Reichsbahndirektion (Rbd) in East Germany and prior to 1949, and YYYY is the code of the station itself, which can be up to four letters. It is noteworthy that whilst some of the Direktionen have been merged into others, changed, or otherwise remodeled, their old codes remained in place. For example, most of the Northern areas of Germany still have the BD code A for Altona (now a part of Hamburg), even though the BD Altona has long been out of existence.Further information can be added by an extra letter after the station identifier, for example HB is the code for Bremen Hauptbahnhof, (BD Hanover (H), station code B) whilst HB X is the code for the Bremen maintenance works, which are considered a subdivision of Bremen Hauptbahnhof and hence do not have their own code.Special codes are also used to identify border points, special tariff points for ships et cetera.
