There are some German words which we'd rather were never invented. From the almost unpronounceable to the sheer pointless, The Local List has identified ten of the worst words in the German language. Do you agree?


We asked our readers on Twitter and Facebook for their least favourite German words which tie our tongues in knots or put dread into our hearts.

Some we've chosen because of their difficulty in saying, while others are just surplus to requirements - but that doesn't stop Germans saying them all the time.

Have a look here at the ten German words we never want to hear again.
