    I am in the US trying to call a toll free number in Germany. I think I have tried ever possible combination but I still either get a busy signal or nothing before the phone ends the call. the number is 0800-8330-330. After looking at this site I have tried 011+49+800-833-0330 did not work.
    011+800-833-0330 did not work
    49+800-833-0330 did not work and a bunch of other combinations.
    please help

    Toll free numbers are generally used for calls originating in the country where they are registered. This is why you haven't been able to successfully dial this number.

    I looked up the number and found some alternatives this German hotel provides for customers dialing in from abroad. Here's the page:

    I am talking about the "Freephone number from abroad" which you should be able to dial from the US free of charge, or, as a last resort, the "chargeable" number at the bottom which is a regular German landline. In both cases you should replace the starting 00 with 011.
