Harbour Front Literaturfestival

Literature and Culture at the Port of Hamburg

Against the backdrop of harbour cranes and overseas containers, docks and shipyards, the Harbour Front Literature Festival will once again bring together great German and international literature, creating a wholesale market of knowledge, news and cultural exchange.

Everyone knows the attraction of the port of Hamburg. The idea of Harbour Front is to bring this large market of knowledge and news into direct connection with great German and international literature. Well over 20,000 visitors each year prove that this idea is well received. The Harbour Front Literature Festival was launched in 2008 and held for the first time in September 2009. Since then, more than 220,000 visitors have come to 75 venues in the harbor. Over 1,000 participants - including more than 900 literary artists, 120 presenters and more than 100 actors - from a total of 40 countries have turned the Port of Hamburg into a meeting place for literature.

The largest festival in northern Germany combines extraordinary venues with great authors. To emphasize the festival's connection to the port, from now on even more readings will take place on the water. Many outstanding literary representatives as well as young talents will be there when, probably in Autumn 2023, it will once again be "Cast off and full speed ahead!" for the Festival of Books in the Hamburg harbor area.

Dates and further information on the program for 2023 will be announced here shortly.
