If you need a visa, you should sign up as early as possible. We need to send you an invitation with which you need to contract the German embassy in your country.

There are bank machines available for credit cards. US bank cards don’t work in Germany. You cannot pay in US dollars either. Banks are closed on the weekends. You can change money at the hotel but it would be cheaper to do it while you are still at home in your country.
