If you're trying to choose a destination for your vacation, Germany might appeal to you. Whether you plan to visit the site of the Berlin Wall or backpack through the Rhine Valley, being familiar with simple German phrases can help your interactions with the locals. You'll likely find several instances in which you can say "you're welcome." When dealing with government officials, a formal response is better than what you would say while speaking to a server or tour guide.
If you don't want to overwhelm yourself with learning multiple ways to say "you're welcome," concentrate on "bitte schön," which is a universal way of saying "you're welcome." Pronounce this phrase similar to "bitta-shune." A slightly more formal way of addressing someone is to say "gern geschehen." This phrase translates roughly to mean "with pleasure" and is pronounced similar to "gern gescheen."
