The white villa at the Schwanenwik has been home for Nobel Prize winners and upcoming writers, for artists and theatre people.

Since 1989, the white villa at the Schwanenwik on the Uhlenhorst has been home for Nobel Prize winners and upcoming writers, for artists and theatre people, for philosophers and those who like a good discussion. Not only authors from all around the world, but also the audience love the hospitable atmosphere, the stimulating climate and the challenging literary programme in this wonderfully renovated house of late neoclassical style on the Outer Alster.

Located in a picturesque villa on the Schwanenwik, the Literaturhaus is the first address in Hamburg for reading enthusiasts and tourists. In a cosy, stimulating atmosphere, Nobel Prize winners and up-and-coming authors, artists and theatre people, philosophers and discussion enthusiasts meet here for cultural exchange.

The Literaturhaus offers a varied programme of readings, discussions, panel discussions and theme evenings. Regularly held series such as the "Philosophical Café", "Somehow Comical" or the "Mixed Double" deal in a humorous and philosophical way with zeitgeist topics around the world of literature. Festivals lasting several days such as the "Nordic Literature Days" or the "Hamburg Graphic Novel Days" also invite visitors to engage creatively with literature. 
In addition to the magnificent localities, the Literaturhaus offers an inviting gastronomic offer. The cosy reading café and bar invite you to linger and the excellently sorted Samtleben bookshop offers sophisticated reading for your home.
