Local Council Office (Bezirksamt)

If you plan on staying in Berlin more than a couple of months you will need to register your address with the city of Berlin.  You will need the registration document (Anmeldebestätigung) if you plan to open a bank account, apply for a visa, or open a phone or internet account.  All you need to do is head to your local council office (Bezirksamt) with your passport and a copy of your rental contract.  The process only takes a few minutes.  To avoid having to wait too long we recommend heading early in the morning.

Check out the following website for links to the various council offices around Berlin where you can register your address
