The Bundesnotarkammer represents the German notaries in the national and international sphere, participates in legislative procedures at federal level as well as during the process of developing notarial professional law and provides for initial and further training of notaries.
Notaries provide competent, independent and impartial legal advice throughout Germany. They contribute significantly to the functioning of the community through preventive administration of justice, while charging much less than you might expect. Further information can be found on the information portal (informations only available in German).

Notaries who have been appointed in the districts of the higher regional courts in Germany are affiliated with the chambers of notaries. A total of almost 8,000 professionals are currently in office. For historical reasons, they exercise their activity in two forms, either as a single-profession notary (Nurnotar) or as an attorney-notary (Anwaltsnotar).
The Bundesnotarkammer considers itself to be a self-governing public body with sovereign rights and obligations, but also as a professional representation for all notaries at national level.
The Bundesnotarkammer is based in Berlin and also has an office in Brussels.
The Bundesnotarkammer also includes the Central Register of Lasting Powers of Attorney, the Central Register of Wills, the Certification Authority of the Bundesnotarkammer and NotarNet GmbH based in Cologne, as well as the German Notarial Institute based in Würzburg.
