"Once lived in paradise" from the pen of Carl Zuckmayr brings it to the point: you will spend an unforgettable vacation with us.
Well-known writers and artists such as Carl Zuckmayer, Johannes Freumbichler, Ödön von Horváth, Stefan Zweig, Max Reinhardt and the brothers Carl and Richard Mayr belonged to the "Henndorf Circle" and lived and worked in the Flachgau community in the north of Salzburg. The association "Literaturhaus Henndorf", founded in 2009, is searching for traces of this great literary past. The Literaturhaus in Henndorf is intended to be an open house of encounter: a place where readings, seminars, workshops, children's and youth programs take place. A house that encourages conversations and discussions and invites you to linger.
The house: For many years, the listed farmhouse in the center of the village presented an appearance in need of renovation. When the association "Literaturhaus Henndorf" expressed interest in the historic building with a concept for its use, with the financial support of the municipality of Henndorf, great commitment of local craft enterprises and great dedication of volunteers, the 300 year old Freumbichlerhaus was renovated according to the specifications of the Office for the Protection of Historical Monuments in style and with great attention to detail. On December 2, 2012, the ceremonial opening of the "Literaturhaus Henndorf" took place.
