Buch Vienna

20. - 24. November 2024 | International book fair and festival

"BUCH WIEN" is an annual international book fair held in November, doubling as a reading festival week that has become a staple of literary culture in the region and beyond since its inception in 2008. Organized by "Literatur und Content Marketing GmbH," this event has established itself as one of the main events in Austria's literary calendar, serving as a platform for showcasing new releases of the autumn book season and as a forum for the exchange of ideas and opinions..

A special focus of the fair is on Austrian authors and their works, but international writers and bestselling authors also find space here to present their works to a broad audience. The fair covers a wide range of topics, with both current societal and political discussions as well as literary trends and innovations taking center stage.

The unique format of "BUCH WIEN" combines the traditional elements of a book fair with those of a reading festival week. Events are spread across the entire Vienna urban area, offering a mix of book presentations, readings, panel discussions, and lectures by both German-speaking and international authors. In this way, major contemporary issues are addressed and discussed.

In addition to the presentation of thousands of new releases, the fair annually attracts many hundreds of exhibitors, including numerous publishing houses presenting their products and services. For visitors, this provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest trends in the book market, discover rare books, and interact directly with industry professionals.

A highlight of "BUCH WIEN" is the awarding of the Austrian Book Prize, which honors outstanding literary achievements and awards authors in various categories. This honor attracts additional attention from media and literature enthusiasts and contributes to the significance of the event.

The main events of the fair take place at Messe Wien, a modern exhibition venue that offers an inspiring atmosphere for exhibitors and visitors alike. With its far-reaching significance for the Austrian book industry, "BUCH WIEN" has established itself as a place of inspiration, exchange, and lively engagement with literature.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 5 days of the fair, from 23. November to 27. November 2022, about 326 exhibitors and 51000 visitors on the Buch in Vienna.

The Buch will take place on 5 days from Wednesday, 20. November to Sunday, 24. November 2024 in Vienna.
