    Just ad "<h2 class="site-description">your description</h2>"
    before the </hgroup> in the header.php
    hope it helps,

    Make sure you do this in a Child Theme (copy header.php into your Child Theme directory and work off that).

    hello and thank you very much for your reply!
    i made a child theme, copied header.php and added <h2 class="site-description">your description</h2> before </hgroup>. unfortunately it didn't work out - i still only see the blog title in the header.
    any suggestion why this could be?

    thanks again!

    The .site-description class is set to display: none in the theme's style.css -- you'll need to set it to display: block.

    i tried that and the result was the following (see screenshot http://www.karinblenskens.de/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Screenshot.jpg).
    thanks again for your help!

    Yes, now you need to style the description to display how you want it. See the .site-description class in style.css to see what properties are already applied, copy that block to your child theme or custom CSS plugin, and then change it how you like.

    Dear Caroline!
    What a wonderful theme - thx!

    I have the same problem like khb!
    In my child-theme style.css I've tried to set the site-description display from none to block, then I get two subtitle?! I'd like to have the subtitle under the title.

    Could I only get my subtitle with an image/logo?

    Thanks for your help!
