Hello Ragmar,


Thank you for your comment. Interesting question!😉


This is quite an old saying, more common in Austria than in Germany.

You use it when you would like to express your appreciation and respect

for a lady.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Hello Reham,


Interesting you ask that.

"Grüß Gott" is the equivalent to "Guten Tag",

but you will hear it mostly in the South, where people

are mostly catholic.


Thank you.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Hi Janette,


Thank you for a good question.👍

Since the formal "Ihnen" is used, it is really

mostly a polite add-on to a greeting nowadays. One

doesn't really expect the other person to go into details

about their personal health. A simple reply would be "Danke, gut."


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Hi Martin,


You can write "kennen zu lernen" or "kennenzulernen".

Both are correct.


Thank you.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.
