@ikandi
thanks for your fast feedback.
where to check? on the phone or on nextclound? confused
Davdroid should show after connection not only the CalDav but also the Contact Books too, so do i believe.

Hi Vinc, on Nextcloud. Go to Contacts, Settings, click on three dots…, copy link, which goes to clipboard. Open in text editor, make sure that string is the same in DavDroid.

https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/13/user_manual/pim/sync_android.html
this instruction i followed,
For URL, type https://www.yournextcloud.com/remote.php/dav
like this it lists the Calender to select but not the contact

and i would not know how to add the contacts by “hand” into DAVdroid

Is the string the same?

yes this part is the same but like on the callender there is also more information behind, which on the calender part is listed and not on the contacts.
