Thank you,
the geometry package works great. Far better than my humble try-outs with

Do you mean that I should not use 'pdfpages' within the latex-document, but as 
a program on its own?

Also, while reading the pdfpages.pdf, it doesn't seem to be straight forward 
how to get the A6 pages on a A4-paper (with correct reverse sides).
I will read the documentary with care. Hope it will work.
