Do "Los geht's" and "Auf geht's" mean "let's go"?

Willst du ins Kino? Los geht's/ auf geht's!

Yes they do mean "let's go" and you can answer "Willst du ins Kino gehen?" with "Los geht's". But "Ja gerne" would be the more common answer.

  • I heard this expression in a song of the same title by die Fanta Vier and Los geht' from Ramsi Aliani's song ' Schlagalarm'. I thought they all meant ' Let's go'. Commented Dec 27, 2013 at 9:28

    Well, there's a big difference between language in music and actually spoken language.

    "Los geht's" is more common than "Auf geht's" I doubt it. Probably depends on audience, region, etc.

  • Is there a phrase one would be more likely to use for "let's go" (to the movies)?

"Los geht's" is more akin to "Let's go", whereas "Auf geht's" is more akin to "Here we go".

    I don't see this difference. Any references or examples for that?
