Etymology 1Edit

From Old High German fluor, from Proto-Germanic *flōraz (compare Old English flōr, modern English floor, Dutch vloer).


Flur m (genitive Flurs, plural Flure)

  1. hall, hallway, corridor, stairwell
    Wir warten im Flur.
    We're waiting in the hallway.
    Sie wohnen auf demselben Flur.
    They live on the same corridor.
Usage notesEdit
  • The word Flur can refer both to a part of a house that connects different units, and to a part of an appartment that connects different rooms. The latter can be specified with the words Diele or Korridor.
  • Unlike its English cognate floor, the German word can neither mean “storey” nor “ground”.
