at the Sonnenburg
The Sonnenburg Literary Salon is where we host literary events on a regular basis: meet renowned writers and attend exciting events as well as author readings with your whole family! Connect with the people who write your favourite books. Share your thoughts with writers and other book enthusiasts. Finally, take home a signed copy of your preferred book as a souvenir!
We present you with regular literary events:
“A good book is like a good friend.” Proverbially. Literally, we go even further. Because reading is our joy, books are our life. This is why we will surround you with many excellent books at our literary hotel. However, we want to share our passion for literature in person as well. With you. By friends (of good literature) for friends (of good literature). Thus, we cordially invite you into the Sonnenburg Literary Salon: join us for authors readings and other literary events!

Annual Literary Festivals and Events at the Sonnenburg
As a literary hotel it is important for us to host and partner with various regional and national literary events. We would like to highlight the most important ones:
Oberlech Tolkien Days
Every year our literary hotel becomes a refuge for elves, hobbits, dwarves – and of course for all human fans of J.R.R. Tolkien. Since 2018 the curators Stephan Köser and Sebastian Streiberger have been gathering experts from a wide range of disciplines every year. Thus, they created an intriguing programme of lectures that is interspersed with haptic elements. During the Oberlech Tolkien Days 2019, for example, there was a workshop on medieval sword fighting: under professional guidance, participants learned how to wield a sword.
Oberlech Picture Book Days
Since 2018, this literary workshop by Austrian children’s book author Melanie Laibl has been enchanting our young guests at the Sonnenburg. Over the course of several days, the participating children develop a picture book story. They rhyme, write, craft, paint, and design their own picture books.
The Oberlech Picture Book Days are suited for any kids who love stories and enjoy being creative.
