Buy bitcoins with SEPA bank transfers

How do you buy bitcoins in person in Europe?
Enter your zip code or location and it’ll provide a list of sellers, their location, price and minimum/maximum transaction. The nice thing about LocalBitcoins.com is the built-in escrow.
The seller deposits the Bitcoins with the website, and when you give the seller the money, they release the money to you, and the website notifies you by phone. It’s safe, easy and cheap. ($)
Our best advice...
It should go without saying, but know who you’re buying from has a good reputation. Honest people also make mistakes, so make sure you know what you’re signing up for.
