Munich's Allianz Arena and the Olympiastadion in the capital are both potential venues for the Europe-wide event in seven years' time, and the DFB will now examine their dossiers before deciding which of the two to recommend to UEFA as Germany's candidate city.
Germany is to apply for both packages available for games, the first of which includes three group games and a semi-final and the second involving both semi-finals and the final.
"With these two cities, we have two very strong candidates," said DFB general secretary Helmut Sandrock.
"Both have proven in the past they are excellent venues for big football events.
"The DFB will now examine very closely which of the two venues we will put forward to UEFA."
Munich's Allianz Arena staged the final of the Champions League last year while the Olympiastadion will hold UEFA's showpiece club event in 2015.
Both stadiums were venues during the 2006 World Cup with Munich hosting the opening match and Berlin staging the final, which was won by Italy.
