Poetry & Literature Festival Bad Homburg2019-01-08T12:49:04+00:00

Project Description

The Bad Homburger Poesie & LiteraturFestival celebrates its jubilee – and enters its 10th round from June 5th to 30th, 2019!

Reading is cinema in mind and a journey into foreign worlds – under this motto the promoter A.C.T./ Hermjo Klein in cooperation with Kur- & Kongress GmbH as well as the magistrate of the city of Bad Homburg has launched the Bad Homburg Poetry & Literature Festival in 2010.

The readings with great stars/ personalities of the German film and TV world, the focus on “world literature”, profoundly chosen by the artistic director and festival initiator Bernd Hoffmann and often imaginatively provided by him with unusual music accompaniments as well as picture & light productions, have meanwhile reached and enthused an audience of several 10,000 spectators – the right moment to celebrate the first important anniversary. For the friends and partners of the first time, it does indeed mean a milestone: who would have thought at the beginning of the series of events that, around the awarding of the renowned Friedrich Hölderlin Prize, in the meantime several weeks in June would be played every year with reading events at the many special places of the city?

The organizer would also like to thank the great audience in Bad Homburg and the partners/sponsors, to whom the spark of idealism and enthusiasm could jump so wonderfully!

All this is to be celebrated in 2019 with a diverse and colourful literature festival of a special kind, and yes, many public favourites of  the past 10 festival years have announced their coming.

New: the 10th Bad Homburger Poesie & LiteraturFestival has a formal “patron” for the first time: SEBASTIAN KOCH, who has been associated with the festival since its inception and who interrupted important movie shoots for his Bad Homburger readings by e.g. Schnitzler, Dostojewski, Thomas Mann, will be an important media advocate for the festival in its anniversary year 2019!
