# How do I add text before the actual list of figures?

Currently I have:

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{Abbildungsverzeichnis}

\listoffigures

\noindent
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed diam nonumy eirmod tempor invidunt ut labore et dolore magna aliquyam erat, sed diam voluptua.

\newpage


And that yields, as expected, the following result:

How do I move the text before the actual list, but after the title of \listoffigures, without it being on it's own page and the list of figures being added to the next page?

You can use \addtocontents. This also allows to get a more precise placement of the toc entry.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\begin{document}

\tableofcontents

\listoffigures
