Summary.

 The molecular epidemiology of human astroviruses (HAstV) was studied using fecal specimens from different regions in Germany during 1998/99 by RT-PCR and sequencing of ORF2 amplicons. HAstV of genotypes 1–4 were found to cocirculate in Germany. The complete sequence of one isolate representing genogroup 3 (putative serotype 3) was determined.
