Do you know all the different ways you can use “gemütlich”?

I am familiar with the way they say that an atmosphere can be cosy (gemütlich).
But then I heard the way they use it as an adverb like “gemütlich frühstücken” :coffee: :croissant:(enjoying a good and rich breakfast) or “er ging gemütlich zur Tür hinaus” (he took his time to leave the house). :walking_man:
So you definitely can’t translate all those significance with the word cosy.
Do you know other examples?

I must admit I’d only come across the “cosy” meaning of gemütlich, but it’s great to know that it can be used in other contexts! I never would have thought of using it for a walk or a breakfast :relaxed:

I may be mistaken but I’ve also heard ‘gemütlich angehen’, as a way of saying ‘take it easy’. I hope this is right!

Yeah, it is definitely an “all-rounder” word :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
