• Haben Sie ein großes Wochenende
  • Since Zandalee and I aren't sure about "großes Wochenende"... How about: "Haben Sie ein tolles Wochenende!" Which I constructed from various German websites and my dictionary informs me "toll" is coloquial for "terrific". Or "Haben Sie ein schönes Wochenende!" Or if you know the person well you would use "Hast du ein ..."
  • "Haben Sie ein tolles Wochenende" is incorrect, as the verb inversion makes it a question (although the phrase could technically be construed as the imperative). If you know them well and are on "du" terms, best to say, "Hab ein gutes/tolles Wochenende", if they are your peers or elders and your using the "Sie" form, then say "Ich hoffe, dass Sie ein gutes Wochenende haben", or "Ich wünsche Ihnen ein gutes Wochenende". "toll" is good for familiar, but not so good for formal.
  • I would just say "Frohe Wochenende"! That is more usual in grammar for a wish. It is like "Frohe Weihnachten!" (Merry Christmas!) "Frohe Geburtstag" (Happy Birthday) and "Gute Reise!" (Nice Trip). Although a lot of people have put Haben Sie....- that is usually not included in a wish. Tolle Wochenende! is another possibility. And a few people have got their endings wrong. It is "die Ende" (feminine) so you have to put the feminine ending on the adjective as well eine tolle Wochenende or eine gute Wochenende or eine frohe/froehliche Wochenende. BUT Wochenende is a das noun, so "Frohes Wochenende/tolles Wochenende" - I stand corrected. Mea culpa. My German is rusty.
  • you can also say: "Ich wünsche dir ein schönes Wochenende!" or formal: "Ich wünsche Ihnen ein schönes Wochenende!". If you don't have the letters "ü" and "ö" on your keyboard you can write them "ue" and "oe", as in: "wuensche" or "schoenes". Hope i could help you. :-D Man sieht sich! (= see you!)
  • I wonder why are there so many complicated answers! People just said "schönes Wochenende" in Germany! Yes direct translation is Haben sie xxx/ Ich wunsche xxx Get real. In real life, ppl will just throw you "schönes Wochenende". End of story. Just like i would say " Have a great weekend" instead of proper text book greeting "I hope you have a great weekend " bla bla bla!
