KASPAR HAUSER FESTIVAL
26. July - 02. August 2020
It will be decided by the end of April whether the festival can take place.
In 1989 Director Eckart Böhmer foundet together with the city of Ansbach, the biennial Kaspar Hauser Festival, whose aim is to comprehensively recognize and acknowledge the event of the appearance of Kaspar Hauser.
Who was Kaspar Hauser? Why did he have to die? What's his secret? - These questions remain unanswered to this day, but taken up again every two years at the Kaspar Hauser Festival.
Kaspar Hauser turned up in Nuremberg in 1828. Within a very short time he became the most famous foundling of modern history. 1831 he was given into the care teacher Meyer in Ansbach. On 14 December 1833 he was the victim of a knife attack. On 17 December Kaspar Hauser died of his injuries. This murder must be considered as the most mystical of the 19th century.
Within his two years of his life in Ansbach he became worldwide known as the "Child of Europe".
The Kaspar Hauser Research Circle became part of the Karl König Institute on December 17th, 2016.
