How do I answer "I'm alone" in German to the question: "How many are you?" For example at a restaurant.

Ich bin allein hier/eins/ein?

1 Answer 1


I'd say it depends on the phrasing of the question, though "Ich bin alleine hier" should work in most circumstances.

Wieviele seid ihr?

  • Ich bin alleine (hier)
  • (Nur) Einer
  • Nur ich

Wieviele Personen?

Für wieviele?

  • Ich bin alleine (hier)
  • (Für) Eine Person
  • Für Einen
  • Einen
  • Another possibility would be "nur ich" (="just me") Aug 14, 2018 at 9:21
