Complete database with the Postal Codes from Austria. The database is free to use, download, or retrieve data via application programming interfaces.
The postal codes here were first introduced on the first of January 1966. These codes contain four digits only, and each code denotes a post office of the official Austria Post Company.
As the postal codes here consist of 4 digits, the first digit is used to identify the geographical region. The second talks about the routing area, and the third one refines the route that the mail takes. The last digit finally speaks about the city.
Sometimes there is an exception of a location and a state. Several locations are not in their state, as the postal code says. So, those mails are served from the exact state of the postcode.
