This website offers a search for German idioms, phrases and colloquial expressions.

Phrases are part of our everyday life, and everyone uses such "parts" of the language, which only have a meaning in their specific context. Especially for foreign speakers, these idioms and phrases pose particular obstacles for the understanding of a language. Many colloquial expressions are not listed in any dictionary.

This search and database should be helpful for all those who want to look up the meaning of German idioms and phrases.
