 Contraction of preposition and definite article

 
 
Certain prepositions and the unstressed forms dem, das, der and den of the definite article can be contracted into one word:

an + dem   am
bei + dem   beim
für + das   fürs
zu + der   zur

Contractions are possible with the following prepositions:

an, auf, bei, durch, für, hinter, in, über, um, unter, von, vor, zu

The contracted forms are not equally common in standard German. Their use is sometimes obligatory, sometimes optional, and sometimes impossible. For more information see unter "Article":
