Can I open an account online

Hello Marcus, in order to open an account, you generally need to visit a local Sparkasse branch. Please bring your German Certificate of Residency showing your registered address in Germany and your passport. However, some Sparkasse branches offer the possibility to open an account online. You can find more information about bank accounts here. On this page, you can view and compare the different account models and you can chose to be forwarded to your local Sparkasse, where you can either directly open an account online or make an appointment with your local adviser.
