Openair Literatur Festival Zürich is an international literary festival held annually for the duration of a week in the Old Botanical Garden in Zurich. The Festival is jointly presented by Literaturhaus Zürich and Kaufleuten, the two major institutions for literary events in Zurich. Founder and director of the festival is Swiss conceptual artist and curator Andreas Heusser. Since 2014, he is curating the program together with Gesa Schneider and Corina Freudiger.

The main program of the festival consists of premieres, performances and readings by acclaimed international authors and promising newcomers. The supporting program explores alternative ways of literary expression and presentation, including poetic installations, performances, interactive audio walks, scenic readings, and interdisciplinary projects at the interface between text, dance and theater.[1]
