Achenkirch, 11.09.2020 - 13.09.2020

The annual achensee-literatour Festival is going from strength to strength. Tirol author Bernhard Aichner is one of the key individuals involved in starting—and organizing—the Literature Festival.

The Festival is strongly connected to the scenic area and its people. With events taking place in unusual and weird buildings throughout the Achensee Lake Area, from boats over Alpine pasture huts to walks and hikes, the organizers of the 2020 achensee.literatour Festival have a unique opportunity to match locations and themes. The Festival became a regular yearly event by 2012, going from strength to strength. Now in its ninth year, Tirol-born crime author Bernhard Aichner is one of the key individuals involved in starting—and organizing—the Literature Festival. Accompanied by musician Florian Eisner, he will present his latest thriller at “Entners am See”.

In 2020, famous authors will pass through the achensee.literatour Festival’s doors, including German-Russian author Wladimir Kaminer from Berlin who will give a reading on a boat. Norbert Gstrein, 2019 Austrian Book Prize Winner, will open the festival with a reading at Alter Widum in Achenkirch. This year’s Tyrolia achensee-literatour scholar Robert Prosser will read at the same opening event.

Other writers include Tirol native Barbara Hundegger, a lyric poet, and Tonio Schachinger. Tirol-based crime author Lena Avanzini will offer a crime walk in Pertisau.
