The infinitive, which is preceded by "zu", goes to the end of the clause: Es wundert mich, meine Mutter hier zu sehen. "It surprises me to see my mother here". Er hat vergessen, seiner Freundin etwas zum Geburtstag zu kaufen. "He forgot to buy his girlfriend something for her birthday". If the verb in question has a separable prefix, the "zu" becomes an infix between the prefix and the stem (e.g. anzufangen "to begin", aufzuwachen "to wake up").
