“Machts gut”



When I was living in Germany, I sometimes heard these words “Machts Gut” when saying goodbye to someone, which I understands mean “take care”. In my mother tongue (Danish), we do not really have a similar word. When would you use “Machts Gut” in German when saying goodbye to someone?


Hallo RexV, 

Yes, "mach's gut" is the same as the English "take care". It is used when you say goodbye to someone - mostly in situations where you are not going to see the other person for a long while. 

I hope this helps.
