Foreign Embassies in Berlin

Find your embassy in the German capital of Berlin.

When planning a visit to another country, renewing your passport or replacing a lost or stolen passport, you may need to visit an embassy or consulate. The American and French embassies have prominent positions beside Brandenburger Tor, with the Russian's claiming one of the largest embassies on Unter den Linden.

Other diplomatic agencies are dotted throughout the city. It is not uncommon to be wandering through a quiet residential neighborhood and come upon a smaller country's representation. Some countries also have two representatives in the capital, an embassy and a consulate. But what exactly is the difference?

Embassy v. Consulate 

The terms embassy and consulate are often used interchangeably, but the two actually serve different purposes.

Embassy - The larger and more important, this is the permanent diplomatic mission. Located in a country's capital (usually), the embassy is responsible for representing the home country abroad and handling major diplomatic issues.

Consulate - Smaller version of an embassy located in the large cities. Consulates handle minor diplomatic issues like issuing visas, aiding in trade relationships, and taking care of migrants, tourists and expatriates.
