In the German language, zehn is the word used to represent the number ten. It is a cardinal number and is written as '10' in Arabic numerals.

Zehn is an important number in various aspects of German culture and society. For example, it is commonly used to count from one to ten, and is often taught to children as one of the first numbers they learn. Additionally, zehn plays a significant role in time-telling, as it represents the hour ten on a clock or watch face.

Furthermore, zehn has historical significance in Germany. It was during the tenth century that the Holy Roman Empire reached its peak under Emperor Otto I, making this period known as the 'Ottonian Renaissance.' The number ten also holds symbolic meaning in many cultural and religious contexts worldwide, representing completeness, perfection, and wholeness.
