About the Event

The Stuttgart Rare Book Fair returns to Stuttgart

26 - 28 January 2024 - Württembergischer Kunstverein

Germany’s leading annual rare book fair brings local and international booksellers together each year.  The Stuttgart Antiquarian Book Fair, Germany's leading fair for the rare book trade, will take place from 26 to 28 January 2024 and returns to its traditional venue and date.

Established in 1962, the fair is one of the oldest of its kind in Europe and reflects Germany’s long history and tradition in printing, publishing and bookselling. After moving the date and location in 2023, the fair returns to its original location and date in 2024, the Stuttgart Kunstverein at the end of January.

Around 60 rare booksellers will once again be presenting old, valuable and rare books, manuscripts, prints and autographs in the familiar, newly renovated rooms of the Württembergischer Kunstverein on Stuttgart's Schlossplatz. A meeting place for collectors and dealers of bibliophilic treasures.

The Verband Deutscher Antiquare e.V. (German Antiquarian Booksellers' Association), the organisers of the fair, will once again be offering the customary start to the year in the German-speaking and international rare book fair calendar. The fair is also an integral part of the region's cultural calendar and in 2024 will again be under the patronage of the Lord Mayor of the City of Stuttgart, Dr Fabian Mayer.
