It's easy to spend lots of money in Germany . If you've got some sort of rail pass and restrict yourself to cheap takeaways or prepare your own food, it's possible to get by on less than €50.00 a day. Those with more capacious wallets, wishing to eat at mid-range restaurants most days, to travel freely by public transport and to stay in mid-range hotels with fluffy duvets should count on dropping at least €100.00 a day.
Euro notes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500. It is often difficult to get change for a €500.00 note. One euro is divided into 100 cents or centimes. Coins of 1, 2 and 5 centimes are copper-colored; coins of 10, 20 and 50 centimes are gold-colored; 1 and 2 euro coins are gold-and-silver colored. It's a good idea to keep a supply of various coins for parking meters, laundrettes, tolls etc.
ATMs are ubiquitous throughout Germany and you should have no problem accessing your credit or debit account back home. Foreign currency, including travelers, cheques, can be exchanged at banks and special exchange shops in large towns.
