lit.COLOGNE 2013

The lit.COLOGNE international literary festival, now in its 13th year, is being held in Cologne from 6 to 16 March 2013 and aims to get children and young people excited about books and reading. One of many highlights of the event is the award ceremony for the German Audiobook Prize. The festival showcases the multifaceted world of literature and shows that it can be presented in conjunction with music and film.

Away from the festival, visitors can enjoy the many other attractions of the carnival city – visiting Cologne Cathedral, for example, or getting a bird's eye view of the city from a cable car over the Rhine.
