Cards in Germany


Germans love cash. As a consequence many shops, small hotels, guesthouses and restaurants don’t accept international cards. Make sure to stock up with Euros before your trip! It was even impossible to use Visa or MasterCard at the large chain store Citti Markt a few years ago. But now you can use them in the hypermarkets in Flensburg, Kiel, Lübeck, Rostock and Stralsund. You’ll also find ATM’s there too.

Those wanting to buy German beer will find it there too, whilst the German-Danish shops mainly have Danish and Swedish beer for sale. Remember that German shops are closed on Sundays and national holidays – the next ones being Good Friday, Easter Monday, the first of May, Ascension Day and the day after Pentecost.

Don’t forget to print out an export declaration form from their website in advance, where you promise to export goods subject to a recycling deposit, to a Scandinavian country on the same day. And remember not to overload your car – check your total weight in your car’s registration documents – which you must have with you for a foreign journey!
