Is there any differences between entscheiden and beschließen? Or are they just synonyms? I translate them as to decide.

1 Answer 1


Entscheiden is often used if you have a personal decision to make where you have different options to choose from.

Beschließen is more like a collective decision where a group of people decide on something together. It has an official character.

But many people use them as synonyms, anyway.
