I’m not sure. But you should take it to a German bank. It’s worth a try. Good luck

You can still change DM to Euro, even the older notes from the Sixties or Seventies are still valuable. You’ll have to take DM-notes to one of the “Landeszentralbanken” (, though. There are no fees for changing. The value is forever guaranteed the same as in 2001/2002 (1,95583 DM for 1 €); so at least as long as the German political/financial system doesn’t crash you’re not risking anything if you wait with the changing (well, apart from interest rates of course). You might want to keep the 1000 DM note if you don’t need the money now, because someday it might be worth more than 511,29 € to some collector.
