German industrial orders fell more than expected in November, decreasing by 5.3% on the month on a seasonally and calendar adjusted basis, the federal statistics office said on Friday.

A Reuters poll of analysts had pointed to a 0.5% fall, after a downwardly revised rise of 0.6% in October.

The statistics office publishes a statement with more economic data. (Reporting by Miranda Murray and Kirsti Knolle Editing by Paul Carrel)
