Reisebank at the airport or train station will do it for a hefty fee, you can try other banks, but often they only do it for their customers

Back in the day, I used to walk around downtown Munich and found private money changers and compared all of their rates. I settled on one who always had the best and fair rates with commission included so I knew what I was getting. I don't know if these still exist.

Sometimes its better just to use your credit card in an ATM, you should get the best 4X rates, make sure your bank will not charge you for use your card abaord

That's what I normally do. I get no extra charges for ATM use or using abroad.

 

Back in the day, I sometimes flew back to Germany with a lot of cash that needed to be exchanged. The limit back then was 10k. I don't know what it is now.

everything over 10000,-- € has to be reported at customs, you can take or bring more but have to declare it
