Traveller tips


The currency in Germany is the Euro.


It is rather uncommon to pay with credit cards in Germany and many stores do not accept them. However you can withdraw cash with your credit card at every cash machine. At the Kirchenplatz (5 minute walk from the IOW) in Warnemuende there are the OSPA (Sparkasse) and the Volksbank which provide ATMs. Also there is a Postbank Counter in the local post office. 300 meter away in the Muehlenstrasse also the Deutsche Bank provides a cash maschine. Banks (open Mo-Fri) will also exchange money, though they sometimes charge a fee to do so if you are not a customer.

Power Supply

German sockets are compatible with most European plugs, especially for plugs which are connected to laptops. For more information and pictures please follow this link or this link.
