Disney Songs in German

Disney songs from some popular Disney films dubbed in german! Music is a brilliant way to immerse yourself in your target language, and what better way than the Disney way? Many of these songs are from our childhoods, so it’s some nice nostalgic immersion. 

*The english titles next to the german is not necessarily a translation, but rather the english title. Also the year next to the title of the film is the year that the initial english film was released, not necessarily when it was released or dubbed in german.

Some notes: I apologize if your favourite Disney film or song didn’t make the list, I definitely didn’t get all of them. Maybe a part 2 is in order? Also, I tried my best to find videos that had subtitles and a translation, but unfortunately not all of them have it. You can always do a quick google search if you want the lyrics and/or english translation. Be sure to check the descriptions as well, some of them have the lyrics in there. Some videos are better or worse quality than others, but they’re all generally listenable.

I’d also like to give a huge thanks and credit to the creators who translated and subtitled these videos! They did all the work, afterall.

Enjoy!

Mulan (1998)

Pocahontas (1995)

Dornröschen [Sleeping Beauty] (1959)

Tarzan (1999)

Cinderella (1950) 

Note: While the german name for ‘Cinderella’ is ‘Aschenputtel’, she goes by Cinderella in the german-dubbed Disney version. Aschenputtel is also an alternative title to the film.

Aristocats (1970)

Schneewittchen und die sieben Zwerge [Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs] (1937)

Note: Disney’s Snow White has been re-dubbed a couple times in german for some reason, so the particular year a song is from may differ from another. They’re all from the same movie though.

Arielle, die Meerjungfrau [The Little Mermaid] (1989)

Note: Same situation as Snow White.

Aladdin (1992)

Der König der Löwen [The Lion King] (1994)

Die Berliner Weisse is a cloudy white beer of around 3% abv. It’s a regional variation on white beer styles from Northern Germany, dating back to at least the 16th century. It can be made from combinations of barley and wheat malt. By the late 19th century, it was the most popular alcoholic drink in Berlin with 50 breweries producing it. By the late 20th century, there were only 2 breweries left. The style has been given Protected Geographical Indication within the EU, where it may only be applied to beers brewed in Berlin. Authorities trace its origins to a beer from Hamburg which was copied and developed by 16th century brewer Cord Broihan. His Halberstädter Broihan became very popular, and a version was being brewed by the Berlin doctor J.S. Elsholz in the 1640s. Frederick Wilhelm encouraged the spread of the beer through Prussia, declaring it as “best for our climate”, and having his son, Frederick the Great, trained to brew it. A popular story is that Napoleon’s troops dubbed it “The Champagne of the North” in 1809. The 2 remaining Berlin breweries, Berliner Kindl and Schultheiss, are owned by the Dr Oetker Group. The drink is typically served in a bowl-shaped glass with a shot of Himbeersirup (raspberry syrup) or with green Waldmeister (woodruff) flavoring.
