Trip to Wiesbaden!

Posted : April 15, 2016.

Hallo meine Lieben, (Hello my dear friends!)

nerobergbahnA few days ago Rita and I travelled to beautiful Wiesbaden in the west of Germany. Some of the key phrases we used were "Hallo, zwei Fahrkarten bitte" which means "Hello, two tickets please", we used this when taking the train (seen in the pic of Nerobergbahn).

Once at the top, we had a great view of Wiesbaden and had a drink at the cafe, I used the following "Guten Tag, wir hätten gerne zwei Cola bitte" which means "Hello, we would like to have two cokes please".

churchbackWhen paying, we gave a tip which is customary in Germany (10% is normal), I gave the waitress an extra 50 cents and said "Stimmt so!" which is equivalent to "Keep the change!". Wiesbaden has some great sites worth visiting!

That's all for now, have a great day.
Tristan & Rita

  1. I’ve been to Wiesbaden and found it fantastic too. Just a question about ‘Hallo, guten Tag’. Can’t I just say Hallo or Guten Tag?

    1. Hi Simon, thank you for your question! Hallo and guten Tag are both greetings that can be used separately. You could, for example say “Guten Tag, wir hätten gerne zwei Cola bitte” or “Hallo, wir hätten gerne zwei Cola bitte”. Rita chose to use both at the same time, a little like “Hello, good day!”. We hope that helps you!
