Discover card in Germany?

Are Discover credit cards commonly accepted in Germany? They are part of the Novus network, if that helps.

Thanks! -Doug

No, Visa and MC are the more common.

I don't think I've ever seen any retailer that accepts the Discover card.

Never heard of Discover cards here. I also don't think that the Nivus network is supported by the ATM's in Germany. Get a Visa or Mastercard, AND a debit card that would work in the Plus or Cirrus networks - because using a credit card for getting cash is going to make your trip significantly more expensive.

If it helps, Bank of America has an agreement with Deutsche Bank so that the customers of the one can use the ATM machines of the other without charges.
