In choreographed talks that saw the two men exchange mountaineering gifts, they agreed to discuss divorce issues before negotiations on a future trade deal can start.
He said: "Ever since the referendum, I have been clear that my first priority is to provide certainty to European Union citizens living in the United Kingdom, and to UK citizens resident in the European Union - and I know Michel shares that aspiration too".
A top German business lobby is urging negotiators for Britain and the European Union to quickly come to an agreement over how Britain's departure from the EU will affect cross-border trade and avoid a "hard Brexit".
Although perhaps he was talking about a British summer in particular?
Merkel said Monday: "I think it is premature to speculate on the first day of the negotiations how they will end".
Tax experts have previously said that the outcome of the UK's general election on June 8, with the Conservative Party failing to secure a parliamentary majority, could weaken the UK's negotiating position in Brexit talks.
The document released after the first day of discussion on "Terms of Reference for the Article 50 TEU negotiations" stated: "The following initial negotiating groups have been established: Citizens' rights; Financial Settlement; Other Separation issues".

With a growing domestic crisis gripping the UK, it is David Davis, the UK Brexit Minister who will face up with the European Commission chief negotiator Michel Barnier. "In addition, a dialogue on Ireland / Northern Ireland has been launched under the authority of the Coordinators". They both served as Europe ministers - for France and Britain, respectively - at the same time during the 1990s. "The protection of the Good Friday agreement and the maintenance of the Common Travel Area are the most urgent issues to discuss", the European Union negotiator explained. If its assessment is positive, the talks will then move on to "scoping the future relationship on trade and other matters".
The Brexit talks were finally launched at the European Commission's headquarters in Brussels almost one year after Britain's June 23, 2016 referendum to leave the bloc.
Discussions aimed at preserving the Good Friday Agreement and common travel area in Ireland will begin, although Davis suggested these issues may not be settled until the end of the process, when the UK's trade relationship with the European Union is settled, the BBC reported.
Davis said both sides were "off to a promising start" even though the challenges ahead were daunting.
Still, it's a role reversal for Britain, which had been buoyed by strong growth in recent times - even after the momentous vote on June 23, 2016 to leave the EU. It's not about punishment, it's not about revenge.
Nearly a year after British voters took the decision to leave the bloc, Davis took a team of officials to open the negotiations with Barnier in the European Commission's Berlaymont building on Monday.
