Hunting Palace Falkenlust: Its Walls Remember Casanova

Falkenlust hunting palace is located at a distance of about a kilometer from Augustusburg Palace. The main palace was used as a ceremonial residence of the archbishop. The second was intended for aristocratic pleasures: falconry, which was a big fan for Archbishop Clement August; late dinner in the company of close friends or meetings with mistresses. The palace, reminding an elegant jewelry box, was designed by the same architect as Augustusburg - Francois de Cuvilliés.

The famous Italian, Giacomo Casanova, was one of the guests of Falkenlust Palace in 1760, who was in a passionate affair with the young wife of Mayor of Cologne, Maria Ursula Columba zum Pütz. A few years later, young Mozart visited the palace admiring its luxurious decoration. After the latest major restoration, completed in 2008, Falkenlust pleases travelers with elegant interiors and numerous ancient portraits. The interesting exhibition tells about the traditions and rules of falconry of the XVIII century. Augustusburg and Falkenlust palace complex is surrounded by a beautiful park, which in itself is a monument of landscape art. The park is open to visitors all year round (although the palace is closed to the public in December and January).
