Heartbreaker, adventurer, swindler, free spirit, gourmet, writer - Casanova embodies all this and much more par excellence!
What drove the most famous Venetian Giacomo Casanova (1725-98) to Germany and what did the bon vivant do here in the late 18th century? This anecdote-rich lecture takes us on the adventurous travels of the self-proclaimed Chevalier de Seingalt through Germany: from Aachen to Wolfenbüttel and via Berlin, Bonn or Brühl to Dresden, Cologne, Leipzig, Potsdam, Schwetzingen - by coach and by ship.
Let us relive the manifold travel stops and encounters with illustrious and less illustrious spirits on the basis of Casanova's memoirs and, in the process, also inspire us to travel in his footsteps in Germany. The fact that this imaginative free spirit, despite all the clichés, also offers many a surprising facet is underlined by a quote from Voltaire: "A philosopher has been lost to Casanova".
