Apartment - Information - English - W48.
Adobe Acrobat Dokument 201.8 KB

Contact to the landlord:



We will hardly see each other during your rental period.

But here is the information on how you can get in touch with me quickly.



Even if this information page seems quite "factual" and "strict" – I am still fully nice and very cooperative.

So if you have any questions or requests, just come to me.

So far, all tenants have always been very satisfied – Especially because all wishes and questions were always solved within a short time.



Contact for not-emergency cases:


The best way is to send me an email directly on the AIRBNB portal.

You can also send an e-mail to the following address:


The contact per E-Mail is much more better than per phone or live



Contact in cases of urgent emergency:


Phone:  +496222385851

(that goes also on the mobile phone and also on the answering machine) 

Emergencies and disruptions:



To be on the safe side, this information is right here at the beginning –  even if it has never been necessary before.




Water damage:

If you need to turn off the water from the whole house in an emergency:

The two main water taps are in the cellar/basement – these are well signposted there – and also explained in the information video.

There are 2 taps – In an emergency, please turn both of them off completely.





Fire extinguishers are in the stairwell and also downstairs in the basement at the end of the basement stairs.




Heating failure:

Normally, I notice very quickly if the central heating fails.

But if I don't react immediately, just write me an e-mail.

I then have small mobile emergency heaters for you, which keep the apartment warm until the central heating works again.

The hot water for the shower is always warm, regardless of the central heating.




Electrical power failure:

In the small “office” there is a fuse box in the right wall.

If there is no electrical power anywhere, one of these fuses may be switched off.

You can then switch it on again in this fuse box.

The fuses are labeled in the fuse box.




Whistle sound:

If a short loud whistling tone can be heard at intervals, this is the signal that the battery in the smoke detector is empty.

This smoke detector is on the room-dividing cupboard in the living room.

You can bring it down and place it on the stairs on the ground floor.

I'll then replace the battery and put the smoke alarm back on the stairs in front of your apartment.








Self check-in:


It is possible that I will not be there myself on the day of your check-in.

I will let you know in advance.

If I am not there, you can easily check in yourself:

Self-check-in is possible on the day of arrival from 17:00.






Key ring:


You have a key ring with 2 keys:  house key + apartment key.

There is also a small metal tag with the imprint PEARL on the key ring.

Please do NOT remove this PEARL metal tag.

This is because this metal tag increases the chance that we will get the key back if it is lost.






Address and location of the apartment:


The address is: Waldstrasse 48 - 69168 Wiesloch.

The apartment is on the top floor (the attic apartment).






Parking by car:


In WIESLOCH there is a permanently installed radar control at every entrance and exit – You have to pay attention there.


You can park on both sides of the street (also on the forest side).

There is always a free parking space within 20 metres of the road.


You are only not allowed to park in front of the courtyard entrances.

You should also always park with the car in the direction of travel.

And you also should not stand with a tyre on the pavement.

The police of WIESLOCH check these things very often.






Front door of the House:


Please always close the front door actively and completely by hand.

Please also actively lock this front door every time - from the outside and also from the inside.






Mail / Post:


Please let send your mail to the following address so that it arrives safely and in time:

Forename  Family-Name


Waldstrasse 48

D – 69168 Wiesloch


Your name is then also listed on the front door.

This ensures that the mail arrives and visitors know where to ring the doorbell.


The incoming mail will be on the stairs in front of your apartment in the evening after 18:00.












Every day at 05:00 in the morning the WIFI has a total reset – this takes about 2 minutes – Possible disturbances are thereby eliminated.


The strongest signal is in the living room.



If you use the internet (WIFI) provided, you must note that you are responsible for your own behaviour on the

internet. Unlawful downloading, uploading, receiving or sending of copyrighted or other unlawful files, data or

content is strictly prohibited and will be controlled and documented and prosecuted. We have already had 2 court cases in which a penalty of about € 1000 in damages was claimed because a tenant had lilegally streamed or downloaded films.








You can adjust the sun-blinds in the bathroom and in the kitchen by turning the round adjusting-rotary-knob in the top right corner of the sun-blinds.


The heating in the apartment only heats when the windows are completely closed.

Therefore, always ventilate only for a short time.


Open the roof-windows at maximum to the first raster/step – there is a chain to avoid a too wide opening (it is against raining in).


Close the windows when you are leaving the apartment – and also during rain or strong winds:






Heating System:


The heating system of the house is centrally controlled and is in a fully automatic heating mode all year round.

The heating system has an "intelligent" control and adjusts the radiator temperatures to the outside temperature every hour.

However, you can also change the temperature for yourself on the hand-held control units with the PLUS and MINUS buttons.

This individual change is possible for 4 hours at a time and within the “normal” temperature range.

This "normal" temperature range is prescribed by law in Germany and currently lies between 10 degrees and 23 degrees.

The heating system reaches these 23 degrees (and even more) very well with closed windows.

The apartment becomes even warmer if the sun blinds are set so that the sun can shine into the apartment during the day.


The heating switches off automatically whenever one of the windows in the apartment is open.

Therefore, always ventilate only for a short time.

You can therefore only heat with the windows completely closed.

If the temperature on the radiator thermostat regulator in a room only shows 10 degrees and the temperature cannot be adjusted upwards with the PLUS button, then one of the windows is not completely closed. Especially the windows in the kitchen or bathroom are sometimes only open a gap of 1 cm - and the heating is then reduced to 10 degrees for that long.

But when all the windows are completely closed again, the heating immediately heats up again automatically.








Next to the sink in the bathroom is a water heater.

This heats the water for the shower.

The wheel in the center of the waterheater should always be turned to the maximum temperature.


This water heater has an extremely high output – To prevent it from overheating, an internal safety mechanism reduces the temperature (usually at intervals) by a few degrees for a period of a few seconds. This is a normal process and not a technical fault.

This safety mechanism does never kick in during a normal shower (3-4 minutes duration), but only during longer shower times.






Linen and consumables:


The towels and bed linen in the apartment are freshly washed at 60 degrees (but not ironed).

You will also find more towels and bed linen in the closets/upboards.


The duvet has press studs. This allows you to make a thicker blanket out of 2 identical blankets.


When you move into the apartment, a first set of consumables is already included. (Toilet paper, etc.)

This first set would be enough for the first 3-4 weeks. This way you don't have to buy these things yourself right away.

You can buy all consumables quickly and cheaply at the PENNY market (4 minute's walk away)








For the entire duration of your stay, you can borrow a bicycle from the landlord free of charge.

If you want to have this bike, just write me a short e-mail.


By bike you only need 5 minutes to the centre of WIESLOCH and only 20 minutes to reach the company SAP. 








The TV channels were freshly saved with a search-run.

The channels programs were not sorted. Therefore it may be that some channel-slots are not occupied.

It may also be that some HD channels (high-definition) get no signal. (for example PRO-7-HD).

But all common TV channels (for example PRO-7 without HD) are definitely somewhere in the list of the channels in normal definition resolution. However maybe on the slots/channel 300 - 600.

You can use the CHANNEL-LIST-Button (CHLIST) on the TV remote control to display the entire list of all channels.

You can use the remote control to highlight a channel directly in the CHANNEL LIST with the arrow buttons and then select the channel directly by pressing the ENTER button.

You are welcome to sort the channels as you wish.

The TV also has WIFI.

You can connect your personal streaming device to the TV - depending on which service (device) you are a customer of.

(Fire TV Stick, Google Chrome Cast, Apple TV, Premiere, etc.)

You can then control your streaming device and its functions on the TV remote control via the button "Source".

Here you can download the detailed operating instructions for the TV set as a PDF document:

Kitchen appliances and kitchen devices:


Most kitchen appliances and kitchen devices are quite simple and self-explanatory.

Smaller appliances such as a coffee machine, toaster, water boiler, egg boiler, etc. are in the kitchen cupboard.


Another request:

Please do not cut directly on the kitchen worktop or table or furniture.

Please do not put on the worktop or furniture hot pots, pans, plates.

Always use the white plastic cutting pads when cutting – You will find these in the kitchen cupboard.

Always use the cork heat mats when placing hot objects on them – You will find these in the kitchen cupboard.








With the microwave appliance you can defrost, heat, cook, hot air bake and grill.


Do not place any metal parts in the microwave. (Pots, pans, tins, cans, spoons, forks, etc.)

Please do NOT change the name inscriptions ("DACHGESCHOSS") on the bell system or the letterbox.

Always lock the house door.
