If you look for a secure and reliable exchange with good liquidity, and a robust infrastructure, then Bitstamp is your exchange of choice.
Bitstamp primararily supports ETH, BTC, XRP, and LTC. It's one of the biggest exchanges for the fiat/BTC key pair and allows deposits via SEPA for a decently low fees. Since the crytpo boom in 2017 they have been facing massive backlogs of registrations and thus their verification time is off the charts so it's difficult to recommend it for newer users as they would be better off with another exchange.
