Currency, Exchange, Credit Cards, ATMs in Germany

Flag of Germany

The official currency in Germany is the euro. Cash can be exchanged at many banks and post offices as well as foreign exchange offices (found mostly at international airports and train stations) or major hotels.

Travelers checks can be exchanged at foreign exchange offices or banks. They are not accepted in stores or hotels. For best rates, travelers checks in euros, US dollars or British pounds are recommended.

Major credit or cards are widely accepted in most stores, gas stations, restaurants and hotels.

Most goods and services are subject to 19% value-added tax (called Mehrwertsteuer). For visitors from outside European Union, a large portion of this tax can be refunded at the refund office at the airport, before checking in. Inquire about the refund and the tax-free form at the time of purchase (not all stores sell tax-free goods).
