Where should I setup a bank account in Munich?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Munich what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"If you are looking to setup a bank account in Munich, there are many banks that offer their services to both residents and non-residents. For residents, banks such as Commerzbank, Deutsche Bank, and HypoVereinsbank all offer accounts that can be opened with relative ease. For non-residents, Berliner Sparkasse and Norisbank are two popular choices. When selecting a bank to create an account with, it is important to take into consideration factors such as fees, account benefits, and customer service. Additionally, it is also advisable to check whether the bank offers services in English and its compatible with international banking for any overseas banking requirements," wrote a member who made the move to Munich, Germany.

"No. When I got here as a student, I worked with the Volksbank because they had a free account for students. What I didn't realize was that I could not use this Volksbank service in any other city. It's not like in the US when, for example, you have a Wells Fargo and it is irrelevant in which Wells Fargo you go to in another city or state. I eventually switched to Postbank because of their online services and CashGroup membership," explained one expat living in Munich, Germany.
