Summer is upon us, bringing long days and warm evenings. What better way to enjoy this season than with a gripping mystery novel? Simply join our sunny contest!

This month you have the chance to win exciting English and German-language crime novels by the well-known Swiss author Bernadette Calonego.

How to Enter: Share your favorite summer spot! Where do you love soaking up the sun or listening to the evening cicadas? Whether it’s a hidden nook by the lake, a peaceful garden, or a special urban retreat, we’re excited to hear about your secret places! Just send us a tip about your favorite spot along with a photo of the place (photos from past summers are welcome too).

Don’t forget to include your name and mailing address with your submission, so we can send you your prize if you're one of our lucky winners. Please also let us know in which language you would like to receive a crime novel if you win.

The contest closes at the end of May. Our entire team at the Consulate General will choose the winners. The top tips and photos will be featured in our June newsletter (names can be anonymized upon request).

Share your summer secrets with us and let's discover the joys of the season together.

We look forward to receiving your submissions to ku-s1@vanc.diplo.de with the note “Sunny Contest” in the subject line!

We wish you all the best of luck!
