How to get rid of your coins in Berlin

Here's what you can do with your small change once you run out of mason jars.

It is known: Germans pay with cash. As a result, it only takes a few months to fill a coin jar in Berlin. Here's what you can do with your small change.

With traditional banks

When you have filled every mason jar you had with coins, it's time to take them to an Einzahlautomat - a deposit machine. Most banks have them; they are slightly larger than regular ATMs, and have a stainless steel door that opens to take your coins.

Commerzbank customers can deposit coins at the Einzahlautomaten available in some branches, even outside of opening hours. Use the Commerzbank branch locator and look for branches with Einzahlautomaten. There are no fees for coin deposits.

Sparkasse customers can deposit large amounts of coins at some of its branches. You will be asked to put your coins in a bag, and a few days later, the money will appear in your account. You will be charged 7.50€ for this service1.

With online banks

Since online banks do not have any branches, the deposit options vary from bank to bank.

N26 customers must use CASH26 to deposit rolled coins into their account. You can find more information on the N26 website.

comdirect customers can use the Commerzbank coin machines free of charge1.

At the Bundesbank

The Bundesbank (the German Federal Bank) will exchange your coins for free at its Berlin branch. Keep in mind that they only accept rolled coins.
