Mädel n (genitive Mädels, plural Mädels or Mädeln or Mädel)

  1. (colloquial) girl (especially member of a group of female friends)
    Heut Abend treff ich mich mit meinen Mädels.
    Tonight I'm meeting up with my girls.

Usage notes[edit]

The plural Mädels is used chiefly in northern and central Germany, while Mädeln is used in southern Germany and Austria. The unchanged plural Mädel is rare in contemporary usage. (Probably because it is reminiscent of the Nazi girls union Bund deutscher Mädel).
