komme

Hallo . 

Why do we use 'komme' for the verb 'going' ?
For eg  Wie komme ich zum Restaurant ? - How do I go to the Restaurant ? 
When do we use 'gehen' then ? 

Danke.

Hallo Vidya-manuS!

Kommen normally means "to come," but you can also use it to mean "to get" in the sense of getting to a certain location. So in these cases, it's slightly different from "to go."

Gehen, on the other hand, is the most general verb to use for "to go," and it also means "to go by foot / to walk." (If you were to talk about going somewhere using a particular form of ground transportation, you would use fahren "to go / to drive" instead.)

I hope that that helps to clear things up!

Viel Spaß!
