On the two-hour walk you will learn interesting facts and anecdotes about the Henndorf poets and visit the places where the artists lived and worked.
The Captain of Köpenick was written here. Thomas Bernhard's mother, Herta Fabjan, is buried in the Henndorf cemetery. Stefan Zweig walked his dogs here and warmed himself at the green tiled stove in the Wiesmühl. Horváth's Youth without God was born here. Carl Zuckmayer, Ödön von Horváth, Franz Stelzhamer, Thomas Bernhard and Johannes Freumbichler as well as Richard and Carl Mayr, Thomas Mann and Max Reinhardt knew Henndorf. All of them and some more, as well as the Henndorf writers living today, have left their mark on Henndorf.
The various stations of the walk lead past Zuckmayer's Wiesmühl and Stelzhamer's residence, along the Thomas Bernhard Stone and the Bräu inn to the Literaturhaus. At selected places you will also hear quotations from various works, because literature wants to be heard and read - this overall experience is what makes the literature walk in Henndorf so appealing.
The walk can either on my own can be undertaken - directions are available at the Henndorf tourist office or you can register at the Literaturhaus for A guided tour an. You will have the opportunity to watch the film "Carl Zuckmayer - once lived in paradise".
