List of cities and towns in Germany

This is a complete list of the 2,056 cities and towns in Germany (as of January 1st, 2019). There is no distinction between town and city in Germany; a Stadt is an independent municipality (see Municipalities of Germany) that has been given the right to use that title. In contrast, the generally smaller German municipalities that don't use this title, and are thus not included here, are usually just called Gemeinden. Historically, the title Stadt was associated with town privileges, but today it is a mere honorific title. The title can be bestowed to a municipality by its respective state government and is generally given to such municipalities that have either had historic town rights or have attained considerable size and importance more recently. Towns with over 100,000 inhabitants are officially called Großstadt, which is often translated to English as "city". In this list, only the cities' and towns' names are given.
