The participants were able to discover the diversity of literature in Luxembourg through a program of meetings and visits including a literary tour of the city of Esch, the Luxembourg Learning Center followed by a presentation of the cultural program of Esch2022 as well as the Maison Victor Hugo in Vianden and the Institut Pierre Werner. The program also included a visit of the LiteraTour, one of the most important literary festivals in Luxembourg organized by the Commune of Bettembourg. Finally, the visit of the National Literature Center – CNL was an opportunity to discover the exhibition Imaginer Servais, as well as to meet and exchange with the nominees of the Prix Servais 2022.

Dedicated meetings for Luxembourg publishers and writers allowed for lively discussions and critical exchanges with the German delegation. Alongside the diverse program, the Luxembourg gastronomy was equally well received.

The German delegation as well as the Luxembourg authors and publishers are very enthusiastic about the valuable and fruitful exchange of these meetings.
