Symbolic Danube well in Donaueschingen is being refurbished. So don't be surprised if Danube in your city* will be dry ;-))

It is really a highway. The road in the picture is B500, called as "Schwarzwaldhochstrasse" which literally means "Black forest high way", actually meaning "peak way" or "top way". This road runs along the peaks of the Black Forest Mountains, in 800-1200 meters above sea level and connects a lot of holiday resorts.

If something costs for example 37.60, and you have some coins in your pocket, do you prefer giving 40.60 and getting 3.00 for change or you give 40 and get bunch of coins?

Sure 40.60 to have 3.00 back!

Well, ideally there's just 1 coin difference. €3.00 = €2.00 + €1.00 (2 coins). €2.40 = €2.00 + €0.20 + €0.20 (3 coins). Recently I bought something for €51.51, but instead of €52.00 I gave €52.55.

Good topic Prefer to get rounded change. But if I get bunch of coins, I usually fill the self-service cash desk at Tesco up by them

If have to pay 7.42 €, I insert all the small copper coins I have in (let it adds up to 5.12) and then add 2+1 € coin. The cash give me the change of 2.30, which is often made up by non-copper (read "normal) coins It is good way to get rid of them.

37.60 was random sum which first came to my mind. But you get the point.

I'm not too much a fan, I don't like the cheesy bits and the crispyness of frieten is the best part anyway

I admit though always chuckling reading about "Vladimir Poutine", there are a lot of poutine places (like frituur-s) on the road in small towns, etc with names like "Monsieur Poutine" or "le Roi Poutine" (poutine king) and I always end up making a joke about Vlad

You don't have cents with dinars, right?

Joke few months ago in the Italian SSC:
We have a transgender politician whose name is Wladimiro Guadagno, but it's known with the pseudonym of Vladimir Luxuria.
There was a thread about the situation in the Ukraine and it was mentioned also the issue of Transnistria, that wants to join Russia. One wrote that a place called Transnistria shouldn't belong to Vladimir Putin but to that other Vladimir.

Sorry, actually the difference is 3 coins, because you first get rid of at least 2 coins if you give €40.60, but not if you give €40.00.

In Italy there are talks to eliminate the 1 and 2 cents coins and rounding prices to the nearest 5 cents.

Am I going to need the change in the near future (for laundry, say)? Or, conversely, am I carrying so much coin around it's getting annoying?

Yes, we don't have paras, smallest coin is 1 dinar. But we have prices like 162.28 or 499.99 which are rounded when paying.
I gave example with euro, since most people here live in Eurozone, where are 8 coin denominations, while in Serbia there are only 3 (1, 2 and 5 RSD; 10 and 20 RSD are both coins and banknotes, but 90% are banknotes, coins rarely seen).

This morning my bill in a shop was 236 RSD, and I gave 1000 RSD banknote and the cashier asked do I have 6 or 40 dinars, after which I gave her 40, so my change was 804. Lack of coins in a cash register I guess.
