Use of comma in German numbers

Use of comma and period in German is opposite to English. Comma is used as decimal separator and period is used as thousand separator.
For example, 1.100 is not one point one zero, it is one thousand one hundred in German.
1.100,58 Euro is "Eintausend einhundert Euro und achtundfünfzig Cent" (One thousand one hundred euros eighty-five cents).
