Frankfurter Buchmesse 2023 Frankfurter Buchmesse 2023

It’s still true in 2023: you really need to be there!

Frankfurter Buchmesse 2022 was a great success for both trade visitors and the general public. Now it’s time to get excited about Frankfurter Buchmesse 2023, because there’s something special to celebrate. Next October, the 75th Frankfurter Buchmesse will take place. That’s 75 times a business platform, 75 times a cultural festival, 75 times an innovation hub and 75 times a place for media and culture stars. Make sure you’re there! Our ticket shop will open in summer 2023. We look forward to seeing you.
