    In case you're with the military and stay on the base, you won't need any Euros, but as soon as you leave the base it's Euros. There are a few places which accept US$, but the exchange rate is worse than in the banks.
    One US$ is about 73 Euro cents today.
    How much Euros you need depends on what you have to pay for, clubbing can get expensive if you have a few - or more than a few - drinks.
    What else do you have to pay for in Euros?

    So you don't have to pay for your accomodation?
    One restaurant meal a day - about 20 Euro
    Ticket for the transportation - about 5 Euro
    Shopping, clubbing -I have no idea what you like, let's say another 25 Euro a day.
    If you budget 50 Euro per day, you should be fine, unless you like more expensive restaurants and more expensive clubs.You also have to consider the entrance fee,not just the drinks.
