How do you say wonderful in German?

The direct translation of wonderful into German is “wunderbar”. Depending on the context, wonderful can also be translated as “wundervoll,” “herrlich” or “traumhaft.”

Combine them with “einfach”

All of these translations for wonderful can (and often should) be combined with the adverb “einfach”  as an intensifier.

More often than not, your sentences with “wunderbar” (or synonyms of it) will sound more natural that way, especially in oral conversations. You will find plenty of examples with einfach combined with wunderbar in the next section.

Note that einfach is always placed in front of the adjective. So the structure is always adverb and then adjective in this case.


Add wunderschönto the list

Sometimes “wunderschön” can also equal wonderful. Usually wunderschön means beautiful. But let’s have a look at some examples where wunderschön could be a possible translation of wonderful.


Wir haben ein wunderschönes Wochenende (zusammen) verbracht. (We spent a wonderful weekend.)

Diese wunderschöne Stadt wird uns für immer in Erinnerung bleiben. (We’ll always remember this wonderful town.)
