Literaturhaus Stuttgart is set in a building dating back to 1910 and opened its doors in 2001. This bi-level building is adjacent to the Leiderhalle. Aptly named, it not only hosts literature events, but also exhibitions, theater, musicals, concerts, film screenings, discussions and forums. Vinum im Literaturhaus is their on-site restaurant and is open to everyone who loves Italian cuisine. While their bookstore has a unique collection of books which includes fiction, children's books, poetry, autographed editions and classics.
