We are going to Germany and Austria soon. I will have my Canon 60D and a Canon G9 with us.

I have the european 2 prong connector. Can I use both chargers (60D + G9) with only the 2 prong european adapter (no voltage converter)?

Second question on lens step down rings. I have 58MM and 67MM Canon lens. Can I use step down rings to use my 67MM filters (CPL & GND) on my 58MM lens?

Thanks to all who respond.

Yes (but not at the same time, unless you have a cube tap), and Yes. If you go the cube tap route, make sure you use one that's heavy-duty. 240V wants a bit heftier wiring than 120 does.

It's the reverse, Jon, double the voltage requires half the current so the wiring can be thinner.

Back to the OP....the chargers will work just fine with a converter plug and the voltage (230v nominal) is no problem.

You want step-up rings (from the lens size up to the filter size).
