The Literary Spring Festival in the homeland of the Brothers Grimm

April 27th – May 5th, 2019

The sixth literature festival in the homeland of the Brothers Grimm with prominent authors and fascinating participants.

The Literary Spring Festival will once again be held in the homeland of the Brothers Grimm, namely from April 27th to May 5th, 2019.

Once again, well-known writers, actors and moderators are expected to attend the more than two dozen readings, discussions, presentations and workshops.

As in previous years, there will be an unofficial reading, several ‘reading dinners’ and other readings ‘at authentic locations’. Ticket sales are set to begin in December as tickets for the Literary Spring Festival have become a popular Christmas present by now.

The ‘Literary Spring Festival in the homeland of the Brothers Grimm’ has been organized in the ‘Waldecker Land’ since 2012.

In 2019, the important literature event in northern Hesse will once again be held under the auspices of the actor Mario Adorf and the writer Friedrich Christian Delius.

Jointly, the hotels Die Sonne Frankenberg and Schloss Waldeck, Schloss Friedrichstein and the Landhaus Bärenmühle will once again invite visitors to Frankenberg, Waldeck, Bad Wildungen as well as to Frankenau-Ellershausen.
In terms of its finances, concept and materials, the Festival is supported by almost two dozen companies and institutions located in the region.
