In case you're with the military and stay on the base, you won't need any Euros, but as soon as you leave the base it's Euros. There are a few places which accept US$, but the exchange rate is worse than in the banks.
One US$ is about 73 Euro cents today.
How much Euros you need depends on what you have to pay for, clubbing can get expensive if you have a few - or more than a few - drinks.
What else do you have to pay for in Euros?
ok well i wont be stayin on base ill be stayin wit a friend....so how much would u suggest in american dollars for 2 weeks....
So you don't have to pay for your accomodation?
One restaurant meal a day - about 20 Euro
Ticket for the transportation - about 5 Euro
Shopping, clubbing -I have no idea what you like, let's say another 25 Euro a day.
If you budget 50 Euro per day, you should be fine, unless you like more expensive restaurants and more expensive clubs.You also have to consider the entrance fee,not just the drinks.
