The vigilius mountain resort has been a place of storytelling since the very beginning. High above the valley, on an island on the mountain, a pleasant, soulful feeling suddenly sets in: just as if you were sitting in a tree house or around a campfire. In the rhythm of nature, the clocks seem to turn more slowly, the here and now inspires encounters at eye level and fuels the incentive to tell – and listen. Since 2008, the mountain stories have existed in the form of a trilingual booklet (German, Italian and English), which is filled anew each year with the most beautiful stories on a philosophical theme and has developed into a cherished cult.

Since the sixth volume, the stories for the neat, cloth-bound and illustrated booklet have been selected in a literary competition in which numerous authors from all over the world participate every year.
