Königin der Texte

Hamburg Queen of Texts

About me, Charlene

I like photographing and being photographed, music, karaoke, writing and reading, baking, to be happy with friends, I'm very creative.

In 2021 I moved to central Germany.


In my spare time I like meeting friends, I participated actively in the Text Laboratory Bergedorf, which I organized for some 4 years, write, edit photos or videos.  Which I also offer as a service to you.

I enjoy being with people and winning friends from pals developing deep friendships.

Text Laboratory Bergedorf (that means "mountain village" and is a suburb of Hamburg) was an open reading stage 2011-2019, which met once a month for som 7 years. I am particularly proud having been nominated a TextLab-Bergedorf-Queen. Since that is better understood, my title is "Queen of Texts". I have been inaugurated in 2013.

After the death of the founder Petra Klose, the task of organizing the open stage was my duty for the next 4 years. In March 2019 I closed it because noone could be found to take over these tasks.

My youthful radiance, my honest, open and authentic way and my commitment to what is important to me, compose of my success.  I see the task of the Queen as a function, which I would like to fill with life and not as acting a theater role. I want to bring the matter forward, bring close the message to more people and thus actively contribute to this cultural achievement being successful in the future.  I would love to actually represent the entire region with its cultural diversity, its traditional ideals and people. And I am there for everyone.

As a cultural ambassador I am known and popular throughout Germany.  Numerous invitations to highness meetings prove it. Because of my royal job, I have also had contact with important people in administration and politics, as Ms. Vértes-Schütter, the Hamburg Culture Senator Professor Kissler, several mayors, the District of Sömmerda, Stanislaw Tillich, the Prime Minister of Saxony at that time, Ms. Schmidt, Member of the Bavarian Parliament, Wolfgang Tiefensee, the minister for economics for Thuringia...

Queen Elisabeth II of Great Britain wished me a pleasant reign. We had several contacts by letters, and in 2021 she sent me her honest regrets as both my mother and mother in law died.

I was in contact with the Bergedorf castle, the only castle on Hamburg premises and have been recorded as a witness of our time.

Before I became a queen, I travelled many countries all over the world. Far East has fascinated me the most. So I studied Chinese, travelled to Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Hongkong - even to Manila. I would love to dip into Japan. That's why I applied to become the Hamburg Japanese Cherryblossom Queen, twice.

I prefer to dive deep into the cultures I like instead of just having a glance like tourists usually do. I experienced China from the inside, and that is what I do, wherever I go.   

As I publish lots of articles all the time, I am doing journalistic work and am member of the German Foto-Journalists Association DFJ e. V. You could call me a blogger.

The most outstanding event was at the press conference when the Hamburg Elbphilharmony was opened.

In my creative phase I sewed dolls that are almost legendary and often travel with me.

Little Anna-Lena, Stefanie and Charlene have already performed on stage with me and they got a lot of applause. They want to become stars, just like me.

The small Charlene is my little princess and even attended the queens meeting on the picture taken in Calbe (Saale) with me amongst other places.

Furthermore these dolls are animated actors in many of my videos.

I also inaugurated a guy as my court musician. Since 2021 when I moved my home to the beautiful Saale-Orla region of Thuringia, we are a couple. You can listen to his very inventive music here or watch his music videos on youtube or facebook as "Ossi mit Niveau".
