Literature

Together with our writing guests we organise the reading series ‘Writers in the Hotel’ several times a year in our Red House. In 2006 this initiative was rewarded with the Hamburg Culture Promotion Prize.

Breakfast Reading

No readings will take place in december. we will come back at you with new events in the beginning of 2018.

Many authors and artists who stayed in the Wedina in recent years have honoured us with homages, soulful dedications and humorous declarations of love. We created a compilation of the most beautiful works for you.

Illustrated Literature

With students of the Hamburg Academy of Pictorial Arts we designed some of those  homages as pictures. The result is a colourful, magnificent Wedina medley. Have a look yourself.
