QUESTION

I am hoping someone can advise as to the correct word order for the translation of "mountain view". A friend that was fluent in German says berg blick. I also came across a German Shepherd Dog breeder that has used blick berg or blickberg as a kennel name. Any knowledgeable input would be appreciated.

ANSWER

»Bergblick« is the correct translation of »Mountain View«. »Bergblick« is mentally expanded to »Blick auf den Berg / zum Berg«, whereas »Blickberg« would probably be interpreted as a proper name, like »Blick mountain« in English.

(There's also a real mountain surnamed »Blocksberg« and related to witchcraft (check Google), maybe that's what the kennel was named.)
