what has happened until now:

• The Postal Bottle Office was originally active from July 26 - September 23, 2018, in Salzburg and Hamburg, with a personal delivering service by Miss A. Ship.

All questions in a bottle had been transported to Hamburg harbour on the 27th of August and were being answered by customers and probands of the Ship Longing Research Centre, installed by ELBFEST.HAMBURG.

All answers in a bottle were then brought back to Salzburg and delivered to the senders *.

• Since the inauguration of the Postal Bottle Office Salzburg several temporary offices have opened in various places: Theater Zeppelin Hamburg (Sept. 2019), Neumarkt / Egna, Italy (Sept.2019), ...

• a steady Postal Bottle Office has opened in Hamburg on the theatre ship Hoheluftschiff in January 2020.


* Everybody who leaves a contact information will receive a personal answer
