Post Office German post offices (Die Post) are actually quite good and efficient. Not only can you get stamps, you can also purchase boxes for shipping souvenirs home. Post offices also function as banks, so there is usually an ATM at the post office, as well. You'll also find more than 100 offices of Mailboxes, etc. in Germany. You can drop postmarked mail in any yellow postal box, identifiable by the postal horn symbol.
