The name of our house refers to a very small town in the Magdeburg region.
There in the country, Christel spent a very important part of her childhood in the house of her strong and good grandmother. That house too had been built of red brick near the River Elbe and was covered in vine. In honor of her grandmother, and to demonstrate our engagement, we run the house using the name "BERTINGEN"
My widowed grandmother (ANNA Benecke) would run the house with garden,
when uncle Fritz and aunt Berta were on the boat. Bertingen is for me, who spent most of my childhood in Bertingen,
a place to take new energy and an example of harmony and friendly banter.
