For probably any place on Earth, you can search it in Google Maps, make right-click, pick the option "What's here" and you get GPS coordinates.

If I don't want to use Google Maps API, is there an alternative open API to get GPS coordinates by address? To be less broad, say in Germany?

There are a number of APIs for OpenStreetmap, e.g. via html request:

https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/search?q=pleikartsförsterstrasse,%20heidelberg&format=json&polygon=1&addressdetails=1

A json is returned. You can easily access the type of information you need.

I have not used the api for this particular purpose, but openstreetmap.org has very similar map data access.
