Quiz: Do You Know The Colors In German?

Next time you head to your local beer garden or German restaurant, impress the server with your knowledge of German color words. Tell them what color pastry you want or how dark you like your liquor. Maybe their eyes will widen with admiration, or maybe they’ll say “I don’t speak German; I just work here.” Either way, you’ll be impressed with yourself, and that’s what really matters. But before you try out your skills at that local eatery, or travel to Munich or Berlin to see (and describe) the sights, you’ll want to assess where you stand. Take our German colors quiz below to see how well you know the basics. Viel Glück! (“Good luck!”)
