Currency

Mit welcher Währung kann ich in Deutschland bezahlen?

The currency used in Germany is the euro (€). The subunit is the euro cent, or cent for short. There are seven cent coins: 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents, and two euro coins: 1 and 2 euro. Two 50 cent coins make one euro.

Bank notes are available in values of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 euros. However, some small shops will not accept 100, 200 and 500 euro notes. Sometimes this is because they do not have the necessary change and sometimes it is because they are concerned they may be forgeries.
