A Spanish bank in Germany
Schloßstraße 10, 24103 Kiel, Germany
People, goods and services can cross "border" freely between all member states of the European Union (EU). This is why Spanish banking behemoth Santander has branches in Germany. Likewise, German banks can -- if they want to and can compete locally -- open branches in, say, France or Sweden or any member state of the EU.
I'm fascinated by money, finance and banks -- even though like many people, I don't like banks. Still, I photograph banks when I travel, sometimes because I need photos of banks for my banking history blog.
I have a page on Banco Santander: bankingmergers.blogspot.com/2010/03/spain-bank-mergers-ac...
