Stadspostdiensten waren en zijn er vooral ook in Duitsland. Vroeger waren er meer dan 250 totdat het Duitse Keizerrijk alle rechten opkocht, en de Duitse Vorstendommen niet langer hun eigen postzegels mochten uitgeven of post mochten bezorgen.
 
De laatste jaren is daar verandering in gekomen en zijn de Duitse Stadspost diensten weer aktief, nu de wet dat mogelijk heeft gemaakt.
Dat betekent dat in de meeste gevallen ook weer eigen postzegels worden ontworpen. En zoals je kunt zien op de foto, die zegels mogen er wezen!  Dit is er slechts 1 uit een klasse serie.

When the German Empire was divided in many smaller Kingdoms, most of these Kingdoms had their own stamps. The issues where not much different of those for other countries. The heads of the Kings were in most cases the topic of the stamp, and there were some topics like animals, sport, statues.
 
When the German Emperor bought all the rights for postal delivery in Germany, the local postal services dissapeared. Simply cause they were forbidden.
 
With new laws in the recent years Local Postal Services are allowed again, but like in Holland and many other countries, delivery of letters is forbidden. Postcards, invitations, all other printed matter, packages, are ok.
 
And though many countries have such services, not all of them create stamps.
In Belgium, Denmark, Spain and France I know of Local postal services who deliver but don't have their own stamps.

The new Citipost in Germany however, has also done its best to come with stamps that almost look like traditional German stamps. Osnabrück has a beautiful serie with architecture.
 
As for Hannover, they chose for modern architecture. But I prefer the Osnabrück stamps over those from Hannover.
