Hallo Lutz,

You cannot open a PDF with Scribus. Scribus makes PDFs, but doesn't edit 
them, though this might change in the future.

For now, you have 2 options:

you can load a PDF page into an image frame -- it will be rasterized
you could convert to EPS/PS and import as vector, though not every 
feature may import well.
