Little German ABC

N is for Nachmittag

Nach·mit·tag [ˈnaːxmɪtaːk] der <–(e)s, –e> - afternoon

Thats a nice time for walking, resting and drinking tea, when the work is done.
Just now, in autumn time here is at afternoons a famous dusty light mood.
The photo I made on my way home...

Similiar words in German and English I found:

Nest [nɛst] - nest
Nase [ˈnaːzə] - nose
Norden [ˈnɔʳdn̩] - north
niemals [ˈniːmaːls] - never
Nonne [ˈnɔnə] - nun
Natur [naˈtuːɐ̯] - nature


  1. The long shadows and golden shafts of sunlight are my favorite things about Fall.

  2. Both are lovely photos, a very nice view to see on your way home.

  3. Ich liebe den Nachmittag, da ist Kaffee und Kuchen Zeit! :D
    Und am Nachmittag im Herbst ist die Sonne so schön golden.

  4. I can only answer with my Dutch translations. You will see that many words are similar in Dutch and German. Nest [nɛst] - nest- nest
    Nase [ˈnaːzə] - nose-neus
    Norden [ˈnɔʳdn̩] - north-noorden
    niemals [ˈniːmaːls] - never-nooit
    Nonne [ˈnɔnə] - nun-non
    Natur [naˈtuːɐ̯] - nature-natuur

    Nachmittag- namiddag

    Have a wonderful week.

  7. I love the track winding its way through the houses. I'm trying to decide if it is a narrow gauge railway or its just the autumnal light that makes it look small. We have been having some surprisingly warm nachmittag here in the UK this week. Hope your weather is the same.

    1. It is a narrow gauge railway: "Harzer Schmalspurbahn".
      We had the first snow yesterday and very cold here the whole time...
      Hope, the golden autumn will come soon

  8. beautiful pics Mascha. As for the words... keep up the good work!
