Festival “Reading the Mountains

Tales from our mountains

The Reading the Mountains Festival is a way to connect book and mountain enthusiasts across the physical divide. Book lovers and authors, mountaineers and artists from across the Alps (and beyond) come together to discuss similar issues and assess the meaning, impact and purpose of alpine literature.

Some of these discussions were captured in the film “Men, Books and Mountains – In Search of Alpine Literature” produced following the first edition of the Reading the Mountains Festival.
