Person A: 'Have a nice weekend!'
Person B: 'You too!'

2 Answers 2


I usually respond to:

"Schönes Wochenende!"




"Ihnen/Dir auch!"

or, less formal:

"Auch so!"

Of course, to be polite, you could start the response with a "Danke!".

  • "Du mich auch" darf man nur unter guten Freunden verwenden. Es stammt aus einem alten Sketch und wird als Antwort auf "kannst mich mal am A... lecken" verstanden.

  • @Robert: LOL! Gib nebasjoa keine falschen Ideen, sonst sagt er das vielleicht noch. <g> Commented Aug 5, 2017 at 16:30
  • "Ebenso" is also possible and increasingly, regrettably one also hears "Für Sie/Dich auch!" Commented Mar 10, 2021 at 13:01

In German you Add First an Danke (Thanks) so you say "Danke, du auch!" And when you dont want to Add Danke just say "Du auch" or "Dir auch" what means "The same to you"

    I agree it is common to add "Danke" but you have to take care of the formal choice Du/Ihnen. It is very important to point out the difference otherwise it is offending.

  • That's A pretty aLeatoric use of caPital LettErs in youR ANswer. Commented Aug 5, 2017 at 17:17
  • @user29249 I think you have make the use of case explicit, i.e. in response to "Schönes Wochenende" only "Dir auch" is correct, while to "Hab' ein schönes Wochenende" only allows for "Du auch". Commented Mar 10, 2021 at 13:00
