German postage stamps from the period of the German Empire (Deutsches Reich Reichspost and) for the area of ​​the Ottoman Empire (now Turkey) were not overprinted by a name of a country (as in the case of Morocco and China),  they were overprinted by denomination of Turkish currency (later changed to the French), ie 'piaster' and 'pair'.
The first German post in Turkey was in Constantinople-  the current Istanbul - with the time were opened there  offices in three districts: Galata, Pera and Istanbul. German post offices also operate in those cities: Beirut, Jaffa, Jerusalem and Smyrna. All were closed in 1914.
