BOOKFEST city – 2020 Programme


The cultural stage is set in Frankfurt – for BOOKFEST 2020!  Meet celebrities and bestselling authors like Jan Weiler, Ralph Caspers and Helmut Zierl, experience international literary greats like Bov Bjerg and Kristof Magnusson, and discuss society, politics and lifestyle with Linda Zervakis, Ahmad Mansour and Anastasia Zampounidis. These experiences will take place in locations throughout Frankfurt, in exclusive hotels – such as the 25hours Hotel, the Jumeirah Frankfurt, the Moxy Hotel and Roomers Frankfurt – and in other hip locations like the kiosk YokYok + Ninaz. Current social distancing and hygiene measures will be observed at all events.

        Note: Hygiene and Infection Prevention Measures at BOOKFEST city

        The health of visitors and staff at BOOKFEST city is our top priority. All BOOKFEST city locations fulfil the infection prevention guidelines of the State of Hesse, and they are regularly updated. The current situation calls for special measures.

        The number of participants per location is limited on a case-by-case basis and is subject to change at short notice.

        A face mask that covers both the nose and mouth is required for entry to all locations. This applies to the entire event site, and also to the entry and exit points.

        When seated during a presentation, face masks may be removed. Safe distancing of at least 1.5 metres must be ensured at all times. Employees on site will be there to help provide orientation.

        Please be aware that we can only grant entry to participants who have completed pre-registration.

        By keeping a record of participants’ contact information, authorities will be able to get in touch with visitors in the event of a coronavirus infection.

        If you are not able to take part in a presentation, please contact us immediately by e-mail at so that we can offer the open seat to another participant.
