What moves us

Events

Literature is our great love. Since 1999, thanks to a partnership with the Hamburg Literaturhaus, we have been the Hamburg home for authors and presenters from Germany and abroad.

However, we don’t miss out on the broader world of culture either. This allows us to offer you a wide range of events – from literature to music and the performing arts.

Reading series: »Literati in the Hotel«

Reading series: »Literati in the Hotel«

Our reading series “Literati in the Hotel” takes place several times a year in our Red House and is dedicated to contemporary Swiss authors such as Alex Capus, Laura de Weck or Monique Schwitter. Following the reading, we serve wine and light appetizers. The entrance fees support the Literaturhaus project “Schwanenwik goes Schulterblatt”, which fosters young authors.

Breakfast Reading
