  1. GRüß GOTT

    GRüß GOTT is a German greeting that translates to "Greet God" or "God bless you" in English.

The phrase is used to show respect, acknowledge others' presence, or convey well-wishes. It reflects the cultural and religious history of the region and is often seen as a cultural identifier.


  1. Grüß Gott

    Grüß Gott is a greeting, less often a farewell, in the Upper German Sprachraum especially in Switzerland, Bavaria, Franconia, Swabia, Austria and South Tyrol. The greeting was publicized in the 19th century by the Catholic clergy and along with its variants has long been the most common greeting form in Southern Germany and Austria. The salutation often receives a sarcastic response from Northern Germans such as "If I see Him" or "Hopefully not too soon". Grüß Gott is the shortened form of both Grüße dich Gott and its plural Grüße euch Gott. The verb grüßen originally had a meaning similar to segnen, although it now means 'to greet'. The essential meaning of grüß Gott is therefore 'God bless you'. Such a religious expression in a greeting only exists in a few countries. For example, people wish one another a simple 'good day' in Poland, Spain, and Portugal, while in Gaelic-speaking Ireland the popular greeting is Dia dhuit, similar to the English goodbye, a contraction of God be with ye; today, goodbye has a less obviously religious meaning. Also similar to the Catalan formal expression Adéu-siau.
