Banking and Money Matters

In German-speaking Europe you'll find there are three types of banking institutions:
    1) Bank - the bank
    2) Sparkasse or Volksbank - savings and loan association (building society, in Britain)
    3) Postbank - banking services offered by the Deutsche Post.

They are all banks and function as banks and they will have a Geldautomat (ATM, or cash machine) available to get cash with your debit or credit card. Geldautomaten are also found in shopping centers, larger stores, business districts and in other public places.
