Money and Costs

Exchanging Money

Since Germany uses the Euro as a main currency there is not much to exchange. But if you need to exchange money, it is always better (cheaper) to bring foreign currency into the country, than to exchange it before you leave.


As a general rule: The further north you travel, the cheaper your daily life also becomes. Expect to pay 6-15€ for a meal at a restaurant, depending on what you eat, drinks etc. not included.

There are some smaller shops in the Marktstraße and on the marketplace. (clothing, photographers, jewelery, tea, shoes, ...) The supermarkets are more at the edges of the town. There are Kaufland, Rewe, Lidl, Aldi, Edeka, Norma. Plus is the only supermarket in the town centre. But as Hildburghausen isn't that big the others are also in walking distance.

As far as I know there is a japanese book about Hildburghausen. There are also some German ones. If I happen to stumble upon an English one, I'll post it here.
