Regular readings by famous children's and youth book authors at DISDH are a highlight of our school year. Such distinguished writers as Peter Härtling, Paul Maar and Kerstin Boie have read from their books. Readings by authors of Dutch children's books, such as Ineke Mahieu, also stimulate pupils' interest in the language of their host country.

With a programme of cultural and literary events for adults, we invite everyone to our school who is interested in a German-Dutch cultural exchange. We appeal not only to pupils' parents but also to a wider Dutch audience. We have welcomed such celebrities as Reinildis van Ditzhuysen, Dr. Jochen Bläsing, Merlijn Schooneboom and Marnix Krop to events at DISDH.
