This was my entire route during the mini 4 day vacation, I don't know when I will find the time to post photos, I made a lot, of roads and locations.

http://g.co/maps/k7t8e
I also made a short brake in Landsberg am Lech, beautiful town, to bad it was already dark, and the city center is poorly illuminated, and without a tripod and nowhere to rest the camera, I couldn't make any pictures.

For the record, here the biggest note we had was the 10,000 ESP one=€60.10. I've heard that some countries had very large notes, and this explains the existence of the €500 one.

The Netherlands had a 1000 NLG bill, which is about € 450.

most time we calculated exchange ratio HRK:ATS 1:2. but just before € appeared it might have changed.

Germany had 1,000DM = € 511. However it was very rare.

Nothing explains the existence of the 500€ bill. It's the best way to export illegally large amounts of money.

I heard they are sometimes called the "bin ladens": everybody's looking for them, nobody finds them. This of course was before they actually found him

EDIT: To date, I have only seen 2 of them. And I've never seen the 200€ bill.

I've seen my share of € 200 / 500 bills because I used to be a cashier at a supermarket many years ago (just after the introduction of the euro). A local car salesman always came shopping, I had to tell him every time we didn't accept large denominations.

I myself never carry much cash, I usually get € 20 from the ATM every month where I pay some cash things with. Only on vacation I carry up to € 100 or a similar amount of local currency to make cash payments.

About euro

Flash Eurobarometer 306 public opinion survey is 1.5 years old but I suppose there were no great changes since than.
30% of the respondents said there were too many types of euro coins and a vast majority of them said the 1 and 2 cent coins should have been removed. Note that the Finnish were 87% confident with euro coins - as far as I know 1 and 2 cent coins are not in public circulation in Finnland.

Strange that an absolute majority of Belgians (52%) still calculates in Franc for non-everyday purchases while 69% of Slovenians calculates in Euro although Slovenia introduced Euro significantly later then Belgium.
However for everyday purchases everyone calculates in Euro except for Slovakia - Slovaks have had Euro only for 10 months when the survey was made so I think their attitude has changed since then.

There was a special question for Cyprus, Malta and Slovakia about price changings connected to Euro introduction. A vast majority (70-80%) of the respondents thought that prices have increased by the euro-introduction!

These and many other data can be read in this document:

Calculating the old currency with the exchange rate of 13 years ago makes very little sense.

I have seen both 200 and 500 € bills about 2 times in my life. I noticed that the 50 € bills are very popular in Romania... although I don't know exactly why (the Romanian 200 lei bill ~= 50€ is quite rare).

For which reason you use euros in Romania?

I never understood this. As they are legal tender, no shop can refuse to cash them. I've never been in such a situation but, should I be, I think i would call the police and file a complaint for being refused a service.

Yes, they are obliged to accept them. However I heard that smaller shop with no devices to detect counterfeit bills often use the excuse "I've no enough change". I never paid anything with 200 or 500 and I think that 100 would be a good sum for the biggest euronote.

Four years ago a had a short term job which paid 1,000 euro, and I was paid by two 500 euro notes. I used them to pay for hotel rooms but in both cases the hotel receptionist could not change it at once but had to wait until other guests pay their rooms.

And then why you have a €200 note and 10 €500 bills registered in EuroBillTracker? I've seen 8 €200ers and 20 €500ers since I'm there .

I only saw the 100€ bill when I cashed out money from the bank office to buy my car.
The bankomat only gives me 50€ the highest bill.
