See also: Dachböden
Compound of Dach (“roof”) + Boden (“floor, ground”).
Dachboden m (strong, genitive Dachbodens, plural Dachböden)
- German usually distinguishes between Dachboden (used for storage) and Dachgeschoss (used for habitation). Either word may at times be used to combine both meanings, but there is no really neutral term such as English attic.
- In accordance with the component word Boden (“floor”), one usually says auf dem Dachboden (“on the attic”) rather than im Dachboden.
