For the 28th time, the Upper Valais spa town invites you to the Leukerbad International Literary Festival from 21 to 23 June 2024. With readings and high-caliber discussions in and around Leukerbad, 35 and 40 authors, literary scholars, translators, and critics will offer everything needed for a clear-eyed literary perspective. As an introduction to the festival weekend, we again invite you on Thursday (20 June) on a literary walk with authors and a hiking guide.
