    The U.S. Green Card does not count to determine visa requirements in Europe, it may however help to ease up the application process since it proves your ties to the United States.
    Visa are required for passport holders of the Philippines to visit all central European countries. They must be applied for in advance from the Embassies or Consulates of the respective EU countries in the United States.
    25 European countries have opened up their internal borders and have established common visa procedures under the Schengen agreement. Those countries are Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.
    You may visit all of the above named countries and the microstates surrounded by Schengen countries (Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino, Vatican City) by applying for just one Schengen tourist visa. The visa may be valid for up to 90 days in a 6 months period and needs to be applied for at the Embassy/ Consulate of the country you plan to stay the longest time. If that should be equally distributed application must be made at the Embassy/ Consulate of the country you reach the Schengen zone at first.
    For the other 17 European countries not covered by the Schengen Agreement or not being members of the European Union you will need seperate individual tourist visa.
    I recommend to check the travel advise page of the U.S. Government since it provides links to the most European Embassies for visa applications.
