Count to 100 in German

Counting in German is pretty straightforward, there are however rules that must be followed, particularly with the higher numbers like the ones we cover in todays lesson! Let's get started with some numbers between 36 and 102 before moving on to much larger numbers!

How to count to 100 in German

​Let's start with 36 to 102 in German

sechsunddreißig

36

siebenunddreißig

37

achtunddreißig

38

neununddreißig

39

vierzig

40

einundvierzig

41

fünfzig

50

sechzig

60

siebzig

70

achtzig

80

neunzig

90

hundert

100

hunderteins

101

hundertzwei

102

Point

Once you master the basic pattern, you can construct any number.

Zum Beispiel

vierundfünfzig

54 (= 4+50)

dreiundvierzig

43 (= 3+40)

achtundneunzig

98 (= 8+90)

siebenundsiebzig

77 (= 7+70)

sechsundachtzig

86 (= 6+80)

zweiundsechzig

62 (= 2+60)

neunundvierzig

49 (= 9+40)

When talking about numbers between 100 and 999 always start with the first digit + a hundred and then read the last two digits starting from the right.

Here are some numbers from 103 to 1,000,000

hundertdrei

103

hundertvier

104

hundertzehn

110

hundertfünfzig

150

zweihundert

200

fünfhundertfünfzig

550

siebenhundert

700

neunhundert

900

tausend

1000

tausendeinhundert

1100

zweitausend

2000

dreitausend

3000

fünftausend

5000

zehntausend (10.000)

10,000

fünfhunderttausend (500.000)

500,000

eine Million (1.000.000)

1,000,000

zwei Millionen (2.000.000)

2,000,000

hundert Millionen (100.000.000)

100,000,000

Zum Beispiel

einhundertfünfunddreißig

135 (= 100+35)

zweihundertsiebenundvierzig

247 (= 2+100+47)

dreihundertneunundsiebzig

379 (= 3+100+79)

It’s the same with numbers above 1000. Say all the digits starting from the left apart from the last two digits. Say the last two starting from the right.

Zum Beispiel

zweitausendachthundertneunund sechzig

2869 (= 2000+800+69)

siebentausendsechshundertdreiund zwanzig

7623 (= 7000+600+23)

fünftausendundeinundvierzig

5041 (= 5000+41)
