My wife and I have an account with Deutsche Bank which works very well for us. We opened it three years ago when we bought a property in Barcelona. The procedure was very straight forward. All the neccessary paperwork was done in a single meeting with an english speaking manager in the branch. Unlike other banks I researched, Deutsche Bank didn’t charge a fee when we transfered the cash for the property purchase. So far, all transactions have been dealt with efficiently and our branch manager and staff have always been very helpful.
Best wishes for your retirement !
