As far as classic BibTeX styles go, you could use natdin with natbib (l2tabu prefers using natdin over dinat, see p. 15.) or any of the other styles of din-1505.

There are also the .bst styles of the germbib bundle, those styles need to be used with the bibgerm package which is also part of the bundle. (See here)

If you want to use biblatex, you can use either BibLaTeX-DIN1505 or biblatex-iso690, both of which are not on CTAN as far as I know.
