Do you know any German pangrams that use special characters like ö, ä etc?

If possible, with their english translation and transliteration in ASCII characters.

LMGTFY: put this in a Google search: "Deutsche Pangramme" -- the first result is the German Wikipedia with probably more German pangrams than you want to learn by heart. Why ask here if you can just search the web? –  teylyn Aug 17 '12 at 11:09

So many thanx for the link, I finally understand the origin of the mythic sentence: "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog". –  Stephane Rolland Aug 14 '12 at 21:13

There is a perfect (each letter appears exactly once) pangram in German. It uses old-style spelling (Paß instead of Pass) though:

»Fix, Schwyz!«, quäkt Jürgen blöd vom Paß.
