Netflix Codes - Search numeric codes for films, series and documentaries

Netflix offers films, series, documentaries and interactive content from a wide variety of genres and subject areas. It is easy to lose track of the thousands of streaming content. And the Netflix categories such as Comedies, Action and Adventure, Romantic Films, Thrillers, Dramas and Co. do not always reflect the full range. Some genres and sub-genres are even completely hidden. Fortunately, there are the so-called Netflix codes, i.e. numerical codes for the search field, with which you can find sub-categories, regional productions and so on. You can find an extensive list of them here.

Netflix search codes help locate specific genres, films, series and documentaries.

Disclaimer: Not all codes always work

In the following I am listing a lot of codes for films, series and documentaries. I've tried a few, but of course not all of them. In addition, some come from English sources, which means that they may not produce as many or even no hits for the category associated with the code in the Netflix version of Germany. The 12762 for basketball films brings for example "Amateur" and "Coach Carter" as the first search results; the other results only coincide loosely with the search or are only used to fill the page. Other codes produce a mix of relevant results and fillers that you can then dig your way through.
