Banks in Germany. Which one ?
Posted January 29th, 2013 - 10:54 am by from Vilnius, Lithuania (Permalink)
Hallo meinen Freunden,

I would like to know more about banks in your country - Deutschland (Germany). :)

I am moving to live here to my girlfriend. At this moment I don`t have any job, I`ll start to search for it.

I would like to open a bank account and get debit card, internet-banking possibility (I know that all banks could offer).

But my main question is, which banks have not monthly fee for my account ? Which banks have not fee for taking money from ATM (Geldautomat) ?

If all banks have fees, then which bank has the lowest one ? :)

Not a student. As a future employee :)

As I know for this moment, that ING-DIBA and maybe Postbank have konstenloss Girokonto.. If it`s true and they are reliable, maybe I should choose them ?

I can really recommended so called "direct banks".
I do not need any personal consulting services (as banks only like to sell their own products and make money out of you).

Direct banks though offer telephone and prompt email support. They have really good online banking services. Most famous ones are DKB and Comdirect.

=> No fees, free credit cards.

And with the DKB you can withdraw at any ATM around the world for free.

When you go to a Sparkasse or other normal banks you have to stick to their ATM network.


A good web site for comparing services is this one:

I am currently with the DKB and really happy since 2010 ;)

hey there, I also recommend the DKB bank bc its free and u have a debit and a visa card for free! Withdrawing with the visacard everywhere in germany and abroad free. Problem is that it is an online bank! In general online banks i.e. DKB or comdirect aere always free!

Sparkasse: monthly fee around 3-6€
Deutsche Bank: until 30 free
Advantage of these banks is that they are situated in the city. If u have any problems u are able to go there to solve the problem

U have to choose which one is better for u!
