Countess Sandra Bernadotte founded Café Vergissmeinnicht (Forget-me-not) in Mainau in 2010 and she explains in an interview how now the second Café has been started in Ingolstadt at Audi. Café Vergissmeinnicht is run by young people with special needs.

Countess Sandra, previously the Café Vergissmeinnicht, where we are sitting, was a worldwide unique place, now it is no longer that. What happened?
Two years ago my husband met Thomas Sigi, Member of the Board of Audi AG, Human Resources. He comes from nearby and knew the project Café Vergissmeinnicht of Mainau. It interested him, and he liked the idea, to realize such a project also at Audi. At Audi in Ingolstadt are 40 000 people, which was a challenge! With a small working group, we made it within a year, which was an intense work in Ingolstadt and also in Mainau.
What is the secret of success of this concept, so that it could now be transferred to another location?
First, I think that people realize how much passion there is and that the guests noted that this is a special place. We are transparent and explain: This is not a cafe like any other, it operates social and charitable, and who comes here directly supports young people who got a chance and can do something. This idea has not only convinced our visitors, it has convinced also Mr. Sigi.
You yourself are a social worker - what do you teach young people, what is important to you as you make them fit for the open labor market?
This really is very pragmatic. The fact that the young people come and they learn manners, because this is so important in this day and age. That they learn to be friendly. We greet always with a handshake. It is very important that such a thing is internalized. Or that, if you know the person, you speak with the name of him. This is very basic, but so important for life and for their future careers. We get feedback that our young people are the friendliest and most courteous.
Here, in Ingolstadt and soon even from many other places?
My dream is naturally that there are plenty of Café Vergissmeinnichts. The more cafes, the more young people can be taught in an employment relationship. I think a partnership with a global company such as Audi can contribute something. Then I'm a little proud, I freely admit. But in essence, it is important to me is that so many young people as possible get the chance to get a relationship with employment. That's the goal here on Mainau as well as in Ingolstadt, where every year get four youngsters a chance.

German Westwing Home & Living's Westwing Magazin has interviewed countess Sandra Bernadotte.
Sandra tells about Mainau Castle and the article lists why one should visit Mainau.
Sandra tells that there is over 100 rooms at the Mainau Castle and she got lost sometimes in the beginning. She loves the castle's classic style, which was very much done by Sonja Bernadotte. She brought also some of her own furniture when she moved, so it is a mix of modern and ancient. She and husband Björn have made some changes and renovated a little. She talks also about Café Vergissmeinnicht, which she founded about six years ago.

Countess Marianne Bernadotte attended today at a funeral of her friend Jeanette Bonnier (journalist, screenwriter and author, one of the owners of Bonnier Group). Jeanette died on 16th April, she was 82 years old. "An old friend, only happy memories", said countess Marianne to Expressen.

Jeanette Bonnier's inheritance is over SEK three billion, more than 320 million euros. The legacy will go to a foundation which will annually distribute millions of crowns to artists, scientists and persecuted journalists. Her only child, Maria Dahlin died 20 years old in a car accident in 1985. Jeanette founded the Maria Bonnier Dahlin Foundation to the memory of her daughter.

Wonder why Björn and Sandra don´t seem to get children since he seems to be the male heir to this branch of the Bernadotte family.

Mainau was owned by count Lennart Bernadotte until 1974 when he transferred it to the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation he founded. He wanted to ensure the survival of the Mainau castle and park by transferring the property to the ownership of the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation. Count Björn Bernadotte is the "Schlossherr" and lives with his wife countess Sandra at the Mainau Castle. Mainau is now the family business of Lennart's children from his second marriage with countess Sonja Bernadotte.

Foundation philosophy
The foundation purposes represent the consistent continuation of the objectives Count Lennart Bernadotte af Wisborg and Countess Sonja Bernadotte af Wisborg have set with their life's work. The Mainau island in Lake Constance is designed not only to experience the area, but also always the major societal challenges of our day. The centuries-old spiritual and cultural-historical heritage of the island of Mainau is run by the family Bernadotte at Castle Mainau with a sense of tradition and modern design joy in the future.
The members of the board of the Foundation are Professor Dr.-Ing. habil. Dagmar Schipanski (Chairman), Forestry Director aD Volkmar Theo Leutenegger (Deputy Chairman), Count Björn Bernadotte, Countess Bettina Bernadotte, Catherina Ruffing, Countess Bernadotte af Wisborg, Count Christian Bernadotte and Countess Diana Bernadotte.
Lennart-Bernadotte-Stiftung - Insel Mainau
Translation

Mainau Island is operated by a limited liability company, the Mainau GmbH. Count Lennart Bernadotte formed Mainau GmbH in 1991 as a private enterprise to manage the island for the benefit of the Lennart Bernadotte Foundation. Countess Bettina Bernadotte and count Björn Bernadotte run together the Mainau GmbH as Managing Directors. In addition to this Count Björn is the Managing Director of Lennart Bernadotte Foundation. Countess Bettina is the President of the Council of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings (count Lennart Bernadotte was the first president).
