As many of you know, Germans like to combine words together. Here’s the longest one that I’ve seen so far:


As in: ‘Gefüllter Vollmilchschokoladenhohlkörper mit besonders reichhaltiger milchfülliung’, or ‘Filled (with a toy) whole milk chocolate hollow body with a particularly rich milk (chocolate) filling’. This was the description of Kinder Surprise Eggs, which are chocolate eggs with a small toy inside. The perfect gifts to bring back to two boys who’ve been without their father for a month.

That’s 30 letters by my count!
