Usage notes[edit]

  • (from a place) The normal word for “from” (when meaning something other than “out of, from the inside of”) is von. For example: ein Geschenk von meinen Eltern (a present from my parents). However, aus is used with words for rooms, dwellings, settlements, and territories, such as Haus (house), Garten (garden), Dorf (village), Land (country), etc., and also with geographical names that refer to such places. An exception to this rule is that von is used when both an origin and a destination are given. Individual words may also behave irregularly; so one says von einem Bauernhof (from a farm). Compare von for more.
