In German, niedrig is often used to describe physical measurements such as the height of a person, building, or object. For example, someone might say 'Die Tür ist sehr niedrig' (The door is very low) to indicate that they need to duck in order to avoid hitting their head. Similarly, niedrig can be used to describe the water level in a river or lake, or the temperature on a thermometer.

However, niedrig can also be used more figuratively to describe things like prices, salaries, or expectations. In these cases, it generally means 'low' or 'small' rather than physically short. For instance, someone might say 'Die Miete ist sehr niedrig' (The rent is very low) to indicate that it's affordable, or 'Die Erwartungen waren zu niedrig' (The expectations were too low) to suggest that they weren't ambitious enough.

It's worth noting that niedrig can have different forms depending on the gender and case of the noun it modifies. For example, if you wanted to say 'The low price' in German, you would use the phrase 'Der niedrige Preis' with the masculine article 'der' and the nominative case. If you were talking about a feminine noun like 'die Temperatur' (the temperature), you would instead say 'Die niedrige Temperatur'.
