Banking is a simple process in Germany. Whether it is face-to-face in-house services, paying bills directly at the ATM (Automated Teller Machine) or online home banking, Germany's banks provide their customers with clear and easy-to-use services using the latest banking technologies.

There are also many regional banks, such as the Berliner Bank or Hamburger Bank. The Savings Bank (Sparkasse) and People's Bank (Volksbank) also have regional branches, which are named according to their location (for example Sparkasse Leipzig or Berliner Volksbank).
